CPSO investigating fatal stabbing, suspect arrested - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Argument between roomates ends in fatal stabbing

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on today.

An argument between roommates ends with one of them fatally stabbing the other. The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office arrested 54-year-old Michael Brown and charged him with 2nd degree murder in the death of 42-year-old Gregory Bryant.

Plus, the murder trial of Jon Dickerson resumed today. Detective Brent Young has been on the stand since 8:30 this morning. More evidence was presented today, including video and audio statements from the defendant. Dickerson is accused of murdering Darrell Schuab behind a DeQuincy motel in 2009.

Also, one year later the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana returns to the Cameron Shoreline. KPLC's Olivia Vidal was there last year when they built fences to build up the sand dunes… she'll show you what they were doing today.

And is it hot enough for you? Meteorologist Cedric Haynes will have your complete forecast.

We'll see you tonight at six. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.
