ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

St. Tammany Parish sheriff's deputies arrested a man wanted for a domestic-related homicide and four business burglaries, all occurring Saturday morning. 

Officers were called to a home in the 500 block of Smith Street in Mandeville after receiving a call of a possible homicide. Responding officers located the body of a female on scene. 

According to police, investigators on scene learned that the individual responsible for the homicide is also the suspect in four burglaries that occurred across the parish a few hours prior. Authorities began searching for 39-year-old George Dargis, who's address is the same as where the woman's body was found. The female victim was later identified as Dargis's wife. 

Investigators learned that a robbery at Eddie's Grocery Store on Highway 190 in the Slidell area,  was reported around 5:30 a.m. Shortly afterward, deputies responded to the Dollar General Store in Lacombe after alarms were going off, then they responded to Lishman's in Lacombe and the Lacombe Car Wash. 

Police say that in each of the four burglaries, Dargis used a vehicle to gain access into the buildings. He used the vehicle to either back into or drive into the buildings. 

Detectives received word around 10 a.m. that Dargis was at University Hospital in New Orleans, receiving treatment after he was involved in a car accident on the Twin Spans. Investigators issued an arrest warrant for Dargis for the homicide and burglaries. 

After being released from the hospital, Dargis was booked into the Orleans Parish Jail on two counts of simple burglary, one count of unauthorized entry of a place of business, one count of simple robbery and one count of second-degree murder. 

The investigation into the matters continues.

    I usually leave a Saints game with an overall theme or feeling about what I just observed on the field. It typically jumps out at me right away and this column is written. But after Sunday I was left with kind of a blah emotion. Their effort against the Jets was kind of weird. It certainly wasn’t an overly impressive victory to celebrate, but nonetheless, a win in the NFL by double digits is nothing they have to apologize for. Dodging a bullet may be the more accurate descript...

    Juan's World: Saints ground Jets, look to Falcons rematch

    Welcome in to Juan's World and as you know, this blog that I do is strictly an opinion piece with a few facts sprinkled in here and there. So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...
