Man arrested for fatal stabbing on Grand Isle beach

GRAND ISLE, LA (WVUE) -

A man has been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of his girlfriend Saturday on a Grand Isle beach.

Jennifer Dozier, 34, was stabbed to death by 28-year-old Randy Paul Marcel, according to Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman Glen Boyd.

At about 10:30 p.m., Jefferson Parish deputies received a call from Grand Isle Police about a stabbing near Cypress Lane and LA 1 after a Grand Isle resident witnessed the incident and called 911.

Dozier had been stabbed multiple times and was pronounced dead on the scene.

Marcel fled the scene but was captured by JPSO deputies and Grand Isle officers.

Witnesses told police that the couple got into a verbal argument just before the stabbing. 

The couple's child will be placed in the care of the state, Boyd said.

Marcel is jailed at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center. There was no immediate word on whether bond had been set.
