EUNICE — Authorities on Tuesday identified a Eunice man shot dead on Sunday as 31-year-old Jordy F. Bellard
Investigators on Sunday arrested Kenneth Prather, 34, of Branch, in the killing, St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Clay Higgins said. Prather was booked on counts of second-degree murder and possession of Schedule I, II, III and IV narcotics.
A 31-year-old Church Point woman, who was not identified by law enforcement, was also shot in the arm in the shooting and treated and released from an area hospital, Higgins said.
“We’re not anticipating any charges on her,” Higgins said.
Higgins said the shooting happened during an argument between the two men.
