Franklinton woman arrested in Goodbee-area homicide

Margaret “Maggie” Stockstill, 32, of Franklinton, has been arrested in connection with the April 14 homicide of 27-year-old Cody Couch in a residence at 11789 Tantela Ranch Road, near the Goodbee community.

According to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, Couch, his fiancee and Stockstill were all at the residence when an argument began. The argument allegedly became physical, at which time Stockstill armed herself with a .22 caliber revolver, eventually shooting Couch once in the lower abdomen, according to a report. Couch was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The Sheriff’s Office said Stockstill claimed self-defense, but the investigation and evidence concluded the shooting Couch was not justified.

Sheriff Randy Smith said, "If you are going to take the life of another human being, it needs to be justified. That was not the case in this particular instance. It is very unfortunate that this happened, and it all could have easily been prevented. Tempers flared and someone lost their life because of it."

Stockstill, who was arrested April 19, was charged with manslaughter and booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail.

Slidell career criminal gets life for second-degree cruelty to a juvenile

Larry Bickham, 60, of Slidell, was sentenced April 17 to life in prison. Bickham, who had more than 10 prior felony convictions and four misdemeanor convictions, was on probation in 2014, when he exposed his 17-month-old daughter to cocaine, which landed her in a hospital emergency room.

Bickham was found guilty last November of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile and simple cruelty to a juvenile for allowing the victim to be present during the manufacturing, distribution, or purchasing of cocaine. District Judge William J. Burris sentenced Bickham under the state’s habitual offender law, which increases penalties.

The case against Bickham dates back to a May 1, 2014, incident when his toddler daughter was rushed to the emergency room at Ochsner Hospital in Slidell and tested positive for cocaine.

Burris sentenced Bickham to life in prison without the benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence on the second-degree cruelty charge and 30 years on the simple cruelty charge. The sentences are to be served at the same time.
