Angola inmate charged in Wash. state cold case
TACOMA, Wash. - Prosecutors have filed additional charges in Washington state against a man who showed up at the Zachary Police Department three years ago with his wife's body in the back of his car.
Tuesday, Stanley Guidroz was charged in the death of his 3-year-old son for a crime that happened in 1983. KOMO TV reported on its website, Guidroz is accused of hitting his son while the child was crying in a high chair. The force caused the chair to fall over and the child hit his head and became limp.
Prosecutors said Guidroz told them he "knew he was dead" and made up a story about the boy being abducted from a park so he would not be arrested and labeled a child killer in prison.
On March 9, 2011, Guidroz was arrested after driving to Zachary and telling authorities at the police station he had killed his wife in Houma, put her body in the car and drove around for six hours. Authorities said then, the pair got into an argument over their relationship and Guidroz stabbed the woman.
The victim is not the mother of the child who was killed in Washington. Guidroz is at Angola. KOMO reported that a warrant was issued for Guidroz to return to Washington.
