New Orleans Teen SENTENCED TO LIFE After Brutal Carjacking That Killed 73-year-old Linda Frickey

A teenager from New Orleans has been found guilty of the murder of Linda Frickey who had one of her arms ripped off during a violent carjacking in March of 2022. The jury convicted Honore in less than four hours and later received a life sentence with the possibility of parole after 25. His accomplices accepted plea deals for manslaughter. Prosecutors did not offer Honore a plea deal.

Frickey, 73, was attacked by a group of teenagers as she was leaving a local business on March 21, 2022, around 1:30pm. They drove away with her still in the car, trapped by her seat-belt, until one of her arms was severed. This was one of the most brutal carjackings the city has witnessed. Three other teenagers Briniyah Baker, 17, Lenyra Theophile, 16, and Mar’Qel Curtis accepted plea deals for manslaughter and were sentenced to 20 years in prison. All four were apprehended after the police released surveillance footage of them on the day of the attack, one of the girls’ mothers took her to the police station after recognizing her in the footage.

Honore was convicted of second-degree murder and will now face a mandatory life sentence. His lawyers attempted to argue his case, claiming that he was an immature adolescent who lacked the capacity to comprehend the consequences of his actions.

He pleaded for mercy in a letter to Frickey’s family.

‘To the family of Ms. Linda Frickey, I am John and I am so sorry I apologize for you having to go through what you are going through. No person’s family should have to go through that type of hurt.’I made the biggest mistake of my life that day. I think about what you and the family may be going through every day. I say the ‘our father’ prayer every day and night.’I ask for forgiveness everyday. I have wanted to write you all a letter for a long time but I didn’t know what to say and I still don’t know what to say.’I just want you to know sincerely I am sorry.’I know words may change how you feel but I want you to know that I’m aware of how serious this is and I think I am doing the right thing.’
