Sheriff's deputies have arrested a Baton Rouge man in the death of his girlfriend just two days after he told investigators she accidentally shot herself in the head.
Casey Rayborn Hicks, an East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman, says 32-year-old Jason Bringier was booked Wednesday on counts of second-degree murder, obstruction of justice, illegal carrying of a firearm and possession of marijuana.
Hicks say Bringier initially told detectives that 30-year-old Lucinda Ann White walked out of a bedroom about 1 a.m. Monday while playing with a handgun. Then, he said, he heard a gunshot and found her bleeding in another room.
Hicks tells The Advocate Bringier was arrested after he changed his story.
It was unclear whether Bringier has an attorney.
