Stepson suspect in death of Iberia Parish woman

Updated:

NEW IBERIA, La. (AP) - Iberia Parish detectives are investigating the death of a woman who was stabbed multiple times.

Capt. Ryan Turner tells The Advocate that the chief suspect is the woman's 13-year-old stepson.

Turner says the suspect was transported to St. James Juvenile Detention Center where he is being held on one count of second-degree murder.

He says authorities are not releasing the name of the suspect because he is a minor and the name of the victim, which is being withheld while relatives are notified, will be released by the Iberia Parish Coroner's Office.

Turner said the 34-year-old woman was dead when deputies arrived at the home Tuesday night.

A motive for the slaying has not been released.
