MORE DETAILS: How Kimberly Vallery was killed and the two suspects responsible

WEST MONROE, La - Since the homicide of West Monroe woman, Kimberly Vallery, two arrests have been made for Nathan Pettit Jr. and Melissa Ann Moore. Pettit has been arrested for Attempted Second Degree Murder and Moore has been arrested for being an accessory to the crime and for withholding information.

The Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office began investigating a missing person's complaint for Kimberly Vallery on Thursday. Investigators then began looking into a carjacking after being tipped off by one of the carjacking suspects, Melissa Ann Moore.

Moore then gave information about a murder committed in West Monroe. She apparently had a role. Another twist to this story is that Vallery was visiting Pettit at his house. It was then when she was attacked and Moore was in teh room watching it all and doing nothing.

According to the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office, Moore obtained a black storage container to put Vallery's body. Pettit placed Vallery's body in a black storage container.

Pettit and Moore then drove together to a remote area on Ouachita City Road in Bastrop and dumped Vallery's body in Morehouse Parish. The two of them drove to another area of Morehouse Parish to dump the container and other contents. 

This isn't Nathan Pettit Jr.'s first rodeo in the world of crime, especially in the world of hard crime, but this is not the first time we have seen Pettit and Moore committing crimes together.
