A husband has been indicted for the murder of his wife. Robert Lee Heard Jr., is charged with first degree murder in the stabbing death of 35-year-old Demetra Doyle Heard. Eunice Police arrested Heard in September after his wife was found with multiple stab wounds. "Just all the way around good girl, good woman, good mom, good daughter, great friend," said Demetra's first cousin, Enocia Thomas. Demetra had three sons between the ages of 12 and 18.
If Heard is convicted of first degree murder, he could spend life in prison or receive the death penalty.
