The investigation into the killing of a local pastor in his church this past Friday continues. So far, no motive has been established, but this morning, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso said there are allegations of some sort of relationship between the victim and the suspect's wife. KPLC's Gerron Jordan is there. Look for more on this developing story at noon. You can watch Mancuso's briefing HERE.
