HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -
A 21-year-old Hancock County man is sitting in jail charged with murder. Hancock County Sheriff's investigators say Kevin Boudreaux is accused of killing his sister, 20-year-old Janelle Boudreaux.
The shooting happened at the family home on C.C. Road in North Hancock County. Authorities say a domestic dispute between Kevin Boudreaux and his ex-girlfriend ended with a third person shot to death. The victim was Boudreaux's sister, Janelle.
"Some other parties got involved trying to mitigate the argument, one of them being the deceased. The result was the worse result you could have from a dispute and she was actually fatally shot," said Glenn Grannan, Chief Investigator with the Hancock County Sheriff's Department.
Investigators believe the argument centered on a custody issue over the child Kevin Boudreaux and his girlfriend had together.
"How the mother was taking care of the child, he had a disagreement," Grannan said.
Investigator John Luther said it was a real tragedy.
"The victim, her brother and some other relatives had been at the Pass Christian parade earlier in the day," said Luther.
A relative, who declined an on camera interview, told WLOX News Kevin Boudreaux ran into his ex-girlfriend at the parade and asked her to come to his house after the parade. That's when the argument began.
"We know that his blood alcohol level was higher than the legal limit, we know that. The combination of the alcohol and just being angry and the passion at the time all of it played a role," said Grannan.
Investigator Luther agreed.
"Certainly it's a horrific event. I would imagine the pain and suffering that the family members are going through at this time, knowing they lost a daughter, a sister and now the situation with the son."
Bond for Kevin Boudreaux has been set at $500,000. Authorities say he will be arraigned then the case will go to a Grand Jury.
