Woman arrested in death of ex-husband

SCHRIEVER, La. (AP) - Terrebonne Parish sheriff's deputies say a 30-year-old Schriever woman has been arrested in the death of her ex-husband.

Sheriff Jerry Larpenter tells The Courier Crystal Welch allegedly shot 33-year-old Chade Welch twice in the chest with a handgun during an argument late Wednesday night.

Larpenter says Crystal Welch called authorities and told them she had shot her ex-husband. He says when deputies arrived at the scene, Chade Welch's body was found in the driveway.

Crystal Welch was booked at the Terrebonne Parish jail on a charge of manslaughter.

It was unclear whether she has an attorney.
