A Baton Rouge woman is under arrest for allegedly helping her two sons leave the state after a triple murder on Memorial Day.

Police said yesterday that Latoya Coleman, 36, is charged with two counts of accessory after the fact to first-degree murder.

Coleman is the mother of two suspected shooters who killed three people, including a one-year-old girl at the Fairway View Apartments on College Drive May 31. Officials say she helped her sons flee to Texas.

Coleman is being held on a $160,000 bond.
