An Opelousas man is dead and another is accused of manslaughter after a Wednesday afternoon stabbing in the 300 block of Mingo Circle.
Dimmick Guidry Jr., 66, stabbed his wife’s ex-husband in the chest during an altercation at Guidry’s Mingo Circle home, Opelousas Police spokesman Corey Leger said.
Police had not released the victim’s name by Wednesday evening, pending notification of his next-of-kin.
Guidry told police the victim showed up at the Mingo Circle home around 2:05 p.m. Wednesday and, when a fight ensued, lunged at him with a chair in his hand, Leger said.
Guidry then stabbed the man in the chest, Leger said. Medics soon found him unresponsive and transported him to an area hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead.
Guidry remained in the Opelousas jail Wednesday evening on a count of manslaughter.
