PORT ALLEN, LA (WAFB) -

Authorities have released pictures of the two suspects wanted in the shooting death of a man in 2010 and provided information about where they might be hiding.

Karl Howard, 29, and Corey Knox, 28, are believed to have been involved in the murder of Corey Kitts, 43, who was killed in his Addis home.

The West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office said Howard was last seen in Georgia. His last known address was in Roswell, GA. His last known Louisiana address was on Skysail Avenue in Baton Rouge. He last drove a red 2001 Dodge Durango with Georgia license plate: BSZ3927. He is described as 5'5" and weighs 270 pounds. He also wears glasses.

Detectives added Knox was last known to be in Baker. His last known address was on O'Neal Lane in Baton Rouge. He is described as 5'2" and weighs 120 pounds.

A third suspect, Monique Kitts, the victim's wife, was arrested moments after a grand jury indicted her in the murder.

According to the Addis Police Department, Corey Kitts was shot three times at point-blank range in his bedroom. Police Chief Ricky Anderson said he believes Kitts was asleep when he was shot.

His wife and daughter reported finding him dead. Reports indicate nothing was stolen from the home.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Howard or Knox is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
