6th suspect surrenders in NO officer's death

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A sixth suspect in the death of New Orleans Police Officer Rodney Thomas is in custody.

Police spokeswoman Remi Braden says John Chambers surrendered Friday to authorities.

Chambers and five others were indicted a day earlier in the death of the 52-year-old Thomas, who was killed last month in a hit-and-run accident on Interstate 10.

Chambers faces charges of accessory after the fact to manslaughter and conspiracy to obstruction of justice as well as other charges. Bond was set at $800,000.
