Two people arrested at Mexican border in connection with Seminole homicide
SEMINOLE — Two people suspected in the death of a 43-year-old Seminole man were arrested while trying to enter Mexico.
On April 2, Seminole County deputies responded to a suspicious death in a rural part of the county. At the scene, deputies found Mickel Kelough dead in the front seat of his vehicle. Investigators determined his death was a homicide, according to a news release.
Investigators determined that Coker Dean Barker, 32, and Anastacia Little, 27, both of Seminole, were involved in Kelough’s death. A description of a vehicle used by the two was entered into the National Crime Information Center database. U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents got a hit on the vehicle’s license plate as Barker and Little attempted to cross into Mexico from the Laredo, Texas, border crossing.
Barker and Little were arrested about 3:30 p.m. Thursday and are being held at the Webb County jail in Texas.
