An Orleans Parish grand jury handed up murder indictments Thursday (Feb. 21) on three teenagers accused of killing 49-year-old Jeannot Plessy during a carjacking last year in Gentilly, according to District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro.
Edwin Cottrell, 18, Johntrell Robinson, 17, and Boavanti Robinson, 15, were each charged with the second-degree murder of Plessy and the attempted second-degree murder of her 33-year-old son-in-law.
Cottrell, who was 18 at the time of the crime, faces a lifetime sentence if convicted of murder while the Robinson brothers also face lifetime sentences but with the possibility of parole after 25 years.
Plessy arrived at her daughter’s home in the 2400 block of Prentiss Avenue around 8:25 p.m. Nov. 27 when she was pulled out of her vehicle and thrown to the ground by a young man who then climbed into the driver’s seat, according to the district attorney and New Orleans Police Department. Plessy’s son-in-law ran to help, but the carjacker put the car in reverse, hit the gas and struck both victims, killing Plessy, police said.
Cottrell and Johntrell Robinson each face six additional charges including obstruction of justice in a homicide investigation, obstruction of justice in an attempted-murder investigation, conspiracy to obstruct justice in a homicide investigation, simple robbery, conspiracy to commit simple robbery, and unauthorized use of a movable.
