A fight between a man and his live-in girlfriend turned deadly on Saturday as the man was shot to death and his girlfriend is now behind bars.
Lafayette Police say they got a call shortly before noon to check on a home in the 200 block of Guidry Street. That's when officers found the 43-year-old man dead inside of the home. Investigators say he was involved in a domestic altercation with his live-in girlfriend - 22-year-old Destiny McAfee - in the early morning. It was during that fight that McAfee allegedly pulled a pistol and shot him.
McAfee - who is from Longview, Texas - then fled the Lafayette house and headed back home to Longview and later turned herself into authorities there. She will be extradited back to Lafayette soon to face the following charges:
1 count Second Degree Murder
1 count of Unauthorized Use of an Auto
