Welsh Woman Faces New Charges In Slaying
JENNINGS, La. (AP) — A grand jury has upgraded the charges against a Welsh, Louisiana, woman accused in the fatal shooting of one man and the injuring of another.
The American Press reports Rosalyn Faith Breaux pleaded not guilty to manslaughter and attempted manslaughter in August.
She now faces charges of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.
Police Chief Marcus Crochet says Jeremy Ardoin and Nick Coble were shot at a house in Welsh in June. Ardoin later died in a local hospital. Coble was shot in the shoulder and was treated and released.
If convicted, Breaux faces life in prison for second-degree murder and up to 50 years for attempted second-degree murder. She remains in the parish jail on $750,000 bond awaiting a Jan. 26 trial.
