Johnson Jr, 35, allegedly choked, beat, and stabbed David.

David’s body was found inside a car that appeared to have been torched.  

Police told WBRZ that David, a Domino’s Pizza worker, was tied to a BMW’s steering wheel with jumper cables.

In one snippet of the video that circulated online, Johnson accused David of “stealing my s**t”.

He was heard ranting in the clip before appearing to stab David. She pleaded with him to stop several times.

Facebook notified the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office and State Police about the clip.

Johnson admitted to the killing while being quizzed.

Sgt L’Jean McKneely told reporters: “Apparently they were involved in some drug usage together for a couple of days and the end result – as everyone has seen on Facebook Live – is a very gruesome, very evil act.”

David’s godmother Terri Austin said she “didn’t deserve to die like this”.

She told WAFB: “I really thought you know when they say she died that it would have been a vehicle wreck or something like that, wouldn’t never dream that someone would do this to her.”

Johnson was in custody when cops found David’s body.

An autopsy has been conducted but coroners are still waiting for the conclusions.

Cops have charged Johnson with first-degree murder.

Before becoming aware of the murder, he was arrested for theft of a motor vehicle, and aggravated flight from an officer.

He was taken to hospital after being injured in a pursuit with officers.

Court records reveal that Johnson was convicted of armed robbery in 2007.

He was given a 15-year sentence with credit for time served.
