LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - Calcasieu Parish sheriff's deputies have booked a 47-year man with second-degree murder in the death of his girlfriend.
Chief Deputy Stitch Guillory tells KPLC TV that detectives arrested Dwayne Fox on Friday.
Guillory says Fox's girlfriend's body was found in a ditch south of Lake Charles on Thursday.
The woman's name and cause of death have not been released.
Guillory says an autopsy has been ordered in the death.
He said it appears someone might have dumped the body onto the side of the road, but they are unsure about that.
