Louisiana man accused of killing ex-wife with an ax indicted
CHALMETTE- A grand jury has indicted a man accused of attacking his ex-wife in front of her home with an ax as she was leaving for work, killing her.
Multiple media outlets report that 56-year-old Mark Owens was indicted Tuesday on first-degree murder charges in the killing of 48-year-old Kimberly Owens in September.
Authorities say Owens attacked the woman in front of her home in Chalmette, a New Orleans suburb.
St. Bernard Parish Sheriff James Pohlmann said Kimberly Owens had obtained a restraining order against her ex-husband prior to the attack. Police say there was a history of domestic violence.
Owens' arraignment has been set for next Tuesday.
