The Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating a stabbing that has left a father dead and the daughter as the alleged assailant.

Sheriff's Spokesperson Maj. Ryan Turner reported a 59-year-old man was stabbed in the chest Friday night at a location on the 1600 block of John Road.

Through the investigation, deputies determined the man's 29-year-old daughter, Charity Guidry, has allegedly stabbed the victim.

The victim was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for his wounds, but succumbed to his injuries Saturday afternoon.

Guidry was arrested Friday for attempted second degree murder, but the charges have been upgraded to second degree murder since the victim died.
