SHREVEPORT- A Louisiana man is facing murder charges after the investigation into the death of a man who was injured back in June.
News outlets report 54-year-old Marvin Davis, of Shreveport, was arrested Tuesday in the death of 56-year-old Guy Bernard. He faces a charge of second-degree murder. Jail records did not list an attorney.
