PLAQUEMINE, La. (AP) - A White Castle man has been convicted of second-degree murder in the shooting deaths of his wife and stepdaughter.
Prosecutors said 62-year-old Ervin Allen Sr. left divorce court proceedings in Plaquemine on June 12, 2007, drove to his home, then shot his wife in the back of the head. After that, his stepdaughter was shot and stabbed.
Assistant District Attorney Tony Clayton said Allen had been ordered by a judge to move out of his house.
Sentencing is set for July 7. Allen faces a mandatory life prison sentence without parole.
