A Louisiana woman died seven years ago and investigators ruled her death a suicide. But now her husband has turned himself in and is facing murder charges death, police said.
At the time, her death was ruled a suicide, according to authorities.
Court records show Parra “did intentionally discharge a firearm at or near Megan Ducote Parra with the intent to kill or commit great bodily harm,” KALB stated.
Records also state Parra tampered with evidence in hopes of “distorting the results of any criminal investigation,” according to KALB.
For the obstruction of justice charge, officials said it comes from the initial determination on June 28, 2014, that Megan died from suicide.
After a judge signed his arrest warrant, Parra turned himself in at the Avoyelles Parish Jail on Oct. 18, police said.
