Louisiana deputies: Woman, 2 daughters stabbed to death

Full story: The Daily Advertiser

<![CDATA[LOCKPORT, La. (AP) -- Authorities say a woman and her two daughters were stabbed in their apartment, which was then set ablaze. A Lafourche (luh-FOOSH) Parish sheriff's office spokesman says investigators have not arrested anyone in the deaths early Sunday of 29-year-old Jacqueline Gautreaux Nieves (NYEV-ehs), 20-month-old Isabella Nieves or 6-year-old Gabriella Nieves. Deputy Brennan Matherne (muh-THERN) says Nieves' husband is being questioned as a person of interest. He says investigators believe the fire was set, possibly to cover up the stabbings. Investigators don't know if more than one attacker was involved. He says the coroner has sent the bodies to Jefferson Parish for full autopsies Monday. Those will tell whether the three died before the fire. Matherne says Lockport police tell him this is the first homicide there in about 40 years.

Call the Lockport Police Dept. It seems like it should be public information and they would be able to tell you. I've been told that the murder that Warren Vedros (Chief of Police) referenced was at the old Ideal barroom. I hope this helps.
