By Dave Graichen

 

Alexandria Police officers have arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the death of 27-year-old Sheterica Brewer, whose body was found June 1. Brad Edward Jeansonne, a Louisiana National Guard soldier from Alexandria, was arrested on Monday and was charged with second-degree murder. He was booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center. A joint investigation by the Alexandria Police and the FBI’s Violent Crime Task Force led detectives to Jeansonne, but authorities are not releasing a motive or the manner of death.

And, according to U-L-L Associate Director of of Public Safety Joey Pons, they will offering  students, faculty and staff additional  smoking  cessation resources in their "Breathe Easy" educational campaign.

 

A Civil Service report claims that more than 8,000 classified  state employees  have  lost  their  jobs  since  Governor Jindal has taken office.  It states that most of the layoffs occurred in the last two

state   fiscal  years  as  a  result  of  the  governor's   hospital privatization  plan.   Jindal administration officials claim most of those employees were offered  jobs  by private firms taking over the services.

 

Governor Jindal is expected to sign a $53 million dollar fee hike on  uninsured drivers. The measure, by Baton Rouge Representative Barry  Ivey, increases fees for the reinstatement of driving privileges for  those caught driving uninsured. Ivey says the fee increase will fund the Insurance Verification System and also  state trooper salaries.

L-W-C executive director Curt Eysink anticipates the state's work  force will grow at an annual rate of 1.7 percent through 2015.  The employment forecasts are based on historical data and interviews  with business leaders. Eysink says the Lake Charles area should see the  largest employment growth through 2015, when compared to other metro  areas in the state.

 

The State Fire Marshal's office  says  three people died in a tragic fire at an apartment in Metairie early yesterday morning.  The  cause of the fire is unknown at this time, but investigators are treating  it as  suspicious.  One person was injured when jumping from the second story window

 

The  Monroe  Police  Department  says  a  mother  allegedly shot and critically injured her son following a dispute.  Sgt.  Mark  Johnson says the 69-year-old woman seems to have snapped during some type of confrontation  with  her  47-year-old  son  at  the home they shared together. The victim is in critical condition at a local hospital.  The mother, who also shot and killed the family dog, has not been charged at this time and the case has  been turned over to the District Attorney's office for review.

 

President  Barack  Obama  signed  a  bill  into  law Tuesday that will provide  Louisiana  with  significant  flood  protection   and   the construction  of  key  coastal  restoration projects.  Senator David Vitter says the authorization for  the  Morganza  to  the Gulf flood protection and six Louisiana Coastal Area projects go hand  in  hand. Vitter says  in  order  to  nail down the funding for these critical projects, there will still need  to  be  battles  fought and it will take some time, but he is optimistic this will happen.

 

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries  is adding 13 new agents  to  its  roster.   The department holds its law  enforcement academy graduation  today to give the oath of office to their newest officers who have gone through six months of training.

 

Authorities in Assumption Parish says a 4-year-old is who was playing outside his home in the driveway is dead after he was accidentally run over by his grandmother. Police  says  the  4-year-old  was  transported to a hospital in Morgan City where he died of his injuries.

 

According to Slidell  Police, a fight between two families outside a restaurant ended with two people shocked with a stun gun, one person grazed by a bullet and  several  people  injured.  They say 9 people were  arrested in the incident which apparently started  when  words were exchanged between the two families who did not know each other. Investigators   believe  there  were  about  20-30  people  actively fighting including juveniles and more arrests are expected.
