In New Iberia, a husband is charged with second degree homicide in his wife's death. Jarvis C. Berard, 39, is accused of stabbing his 30-year-old wife to death on Dec. 22. When Iberia Parish deputies arrived at the home at 1714 New Horizon Dr., they found the woman had been stabbed multiple times. The Iberia Parish Coroner's Office pronounced her dead at the scene.
Berard was not at the house when deputies arrived around 3:40 a.m., but Louisiana State Troopers and deputies with St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office located Berard shortly after driving a vehicle in the 1000 block of Dora Washington Rd. Berard is in the Iberia Parish Jail.
