After originally listing Lakeitha and Kenneth Joseph's cause of death as drowning, our news partner Fox 8 reports Orleans Parish Coroner Dr. Frank Minyard has changed that to homicide.
The Josephs' bodies were pulled from the Intracoastal Waterway in March after the Reserve couple went in February. Their feet apparently were bound with nylon rope, and a 30 pound kettlebell was attached to Kenneth.
The coroner now says that rope was applied before they went into the water.
