Sims murder suspect moved to Jonesboro
Wayne Joseph Guidry Jr., 26, was booked into the Jackson Parish Jail Friday night on a second-degree murder charge. Bond has been set at $500,000.
Guidry was arrested in New Orleans Thursday night, about nine hours after searchers found the body of Stephanie Pepper Sims in a shallow well on the Jackson-Bienville Wildlife Management Area. It was later revealed that Guidry had been a suspect in the case for some time and was under constant surveillance by New Orleans Police all day the day of the arrest.
