A 27-year-old white man was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison Sunday after he confessed to fatally stabbing his Black girlfriend at a Jefferson Highway apartment complex Saturday.
Baton Rouge Police responded Saturday morning to Arts at Jefferson Heights in the 8900 block of Jefferson Highway. Officials said they found the body of Kinnedy Smith, 21, at the scene.
Louisiana State Police later arrested Connor Regan, a resident at the apartment complex, in the Crowley area. He was brought to a local hospital for unknown injuries.
Regan was booked into the parish jail on suspicion of second-degree murder following his release from the hospital Sunday. It has become a common occurrence to see cases of white men killing their Black female partners/victims.
