GRAND ISLE, La. (AP) - A man who authorities say stabbed his girlfriend to death on a Grand Isle beach has been arrested.
The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office said Sunday that 28-year-old Randy Marcel of Chauvin is jailed on suspicion that he stabbed 34-year-old Jennifer Dorzier, also of Chauvin.
The sheriff's office says witnesses saw an arugment between the two, who had been dating for about five years. One witness saw the stabbing and called police. Marcel fled but was arrested by Grand Isle police and sheriff's deputies.
Dorzier's 1-year-old daughter was on the beach at the time of the stabbing. She is in state custody. Sheriff's spokesman Glen Boyd told The New Orleans Advocate that the child is not Marcel's daughter.
