Two teens accused of killing airman to appear in court


The two teens accused of killing a Barksdale airman are due in court today.

A status conference is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 12 in Bossier District Court for Jareona Crosby, 18, and Alonzo Wilson, 15, both of Bossier City.

The two were charged with second-degree murder following the death of Tech. Sgt. Joshua Kidd, 30, near his home in north Bossier on Sept. 25, 2018. 

Both teens were indicted Dec. 10, and both have pleaded not guilty.

Kidd was found with a gunshot wound to the upper body on the early morning of Sept. 25. in the Greenacres subdivision. 

The incident occurred the same day that a rash of vehicle burglaries hit the subdivision.

Crosby and Wilson were arrested a few days later on one count each of second-degree murder, 10 counts of simple burglary of a vehicle, and theft of a firearm.
