EUNICE, La. (AP) - St. Landry Parish sheriff’s deputies have identified a Eunice man found dead Sunday as 31-year-old Jordy Bellard.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Lt. Clay Higgins tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1HSsP8G) on Tuesday investigators arrested 34-year-old Kenneth Prather, of Branch, in the shooting death. Prather was booked Sunday on counts of second-degree murder and possession of narcotics.

Higgins say a 31-year-old Church Point woman, who was not identified, was also shot in the arm in the shooting and treated and released from an area hospital.

Higgins says the shooting happened during an argument between the two men.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Prather.
