Accused Murderer Lakeisha Congo Arrested



Accused murderer Lakeisha Ann Congo, 28, wanted for the October 27 fatal shooting of a woman in the parking lot of the Days Inn at 1400 Brick Church Pike, was quite surprised this afternoon when the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force took her into custody on 7th Avenue North.

Congo is named in a criminal homicide warrant for killing Sherri Assele, 47, an acquaintance. The investigation shows that the shooting took place as the result of a dispute between the two women, who had been staying in separate rooms at the Days Inn.
