A Lafayette man wanted in the slaying of his girlfriend was arrested Monday in Colorado, according to the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Officers with the Glendale Police Department arrested Miles Joseph Guidry, 27, after they found him asleep in his vehicle and discovered his Louisiana issued warrant on a count of second-degree murder, the Sheriff’s Office announced in a news release. Guidry is being held in the Arapahoe County Detention Center without bail.
Arapahoe County booking records indicate he’s scheduled for court in Centennial, Colorado, at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Guidry is accused in the death of Claire Walley, 26, who was found dead in her Duson home Nov. 29. The couple’s one-month-old son was found unharmed in the home in the 400 block of Lagneaux Road.
The circumstances surrounding Walley’s death are unclear, including her manner of death.
The Lafayette Parish Coroner’s Office last week confirmed her death was a homicide but did not release further information, citing the ongoing criminal investigation.
Walley, a University of Louisiana at Lafayette graduate student pursuing a master’s degree in psychology, was buried Thursday in Lafayette.
