Louisiana - Couty Alexander, 22, was booked into Livingston Parish Jail on a count of second-degree murder after he confessed to shooting his wife, Christa Ann Alexander, 24, said Jason Ard, chief of operations for the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Alexander told detectives that he shot his wife with a 9 mm handgun in the back of the head while she was trying to gather clothing from her closet. Alexander called 911 at 5:51 a.m. Sunday, saying he returned home from a 12-hour shift as an EMT to find his wife dead.
However, Christa Alexander was shot and killed before her husband went to work.
The Alexanders’ next-door neighbor and landlord described the couple as quiet newlyweds who married in March and were active members of the Fundamental Baptist Church.
Gathering clothing? To leave him, perhaps? So he kills her then he pulls a 12-hour shift. Nice.
