Three teenagers have been arrested in the murder of a Louisiana pastor’s wife during a carjacking.
The pastor, David Plessy, told local news station WWL-TV that his wife, Jeannot, was “the most beautiful, honest, caring, strong, funniest, loveliest person that I’ve ever met in my life.”
She was killed on Thursday after she was ran over by her own vehicle by three teenagers carrying out a carjacking.
“I miss my wife,” Plessy said.
“Every step we took we took together in our marriage was to show the love of Jesus to the people who are hurting,” he added, noting that the couple spent their lives preaching the Gospel and helping the hopeless.
Fox News reported that the 49-year-old Jeannot Plessy died later on Thursday from blunt force trauma.
The teenagers were arrested on Saturday, with 17-year-old Jontrell Robinson charged with second-degree murder and carjacking.
Eighteen-year-old Edwin Cottrell was charged with being a principal to second-degree murder and a principal to carjacking, with the same charge also made against a third juvenile, who was not identified.
The couple led the outreach ministry Crossover Christian Fellowship, which they founded over a decade ago.
Jeannot Plessy was a mother-of-five, and a campaigner against domestic abuse, having undertaken a recent evangelical trip to American Samoa to speak on the issue.
