I live not far from this couple. They have a lovely brand new home in a good area, they have been married about a year and the two children are her's, not the victim's. The children are now with their dad in Baton Rouge. She abandoned her car when she took them to their dad's home and left them. (no , he knew nothing about the crime) There is no hint of any domestic abuse on either side prior to this. He had recently asked for a divorce. It is one thing to kill someone if you have reason to fear for your life, but there is no reason to go to the stove and wait for the oil to heat and to wait for the intended victim to fall in a deep sleep. And then run from the consequenses.
