Couple sentenced for attempted manslaughter

JENNINGS, La. (AP) - A couple accused in the beating and stabbing of a Silverwood man has been sentenced on attempted manslaughter charges.

The American Press reports 19-year-old Tiffany Saucier of Welsh was sentenced to 15 years for attempted second-degree manslaughter in state court Monday.

Her co-defendant, 33-yar-old Christopher Marshall Jr. of Lake Charles, was sentenced to 20 years for attempted manslaughter.

Saucier pleaded guilty in November; Marshall was convicted in January.

They were initially charged with attempted second-degree murder in the December 2010 beating and stabbing of Julian Broussard near his home east of Jennings.

Prosecutors contend the couple was seeking revenge for the alleged armed robbery.
