The mother of the 3-year-old boy who was found dead inside a Lafayette home has been arrested. Her boyfriend, 21-year-old Landon Broussard, is charged with first degree murder. Charges against the mother, 22-year-old Laura Smith are pending.
Investigators say the toddler had obvious injuries, and accuse Broussard of injuring the child over a period of time, including an injury investigators say probably caused his death either late last night or early this morning. The toddler was found unresponsive inside a home in the 3700 block of Kaliste Saloom around 10:30 this morning.
