SLIDELL, La. (AP) - State police say a 51-year-old Slidell man was killed and a woman was injured when the motorcycle they were riding ran off Interstate 12 in Slidell.

Roudolfich was pronounced dead at the scene by the St. Tammany Parish Coroner's Office.
Manale says 50-year-old Jeltje Roudolfich was taken to Slidell Memorial Hospital with moderate injuries
