LAFAYETTE - Authorities say a 29-year-old Duson man stabbed his girlfriend, then stood in front of an oncoming train and was killed.

Kip Judice of the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office says Gregory Redondo never tried to avoid the train.

Reports say Rayne police were called to a stabbing about 11 a.m. Friday. Captain Tony Olinger says the woman told investigators her boyfriend had stabbed her.

Less than an hour later, Lafayette Parish sheriff's deputies found Redondo's car smashed into a telephone pole near his house.

Just before 1 p.m., a train engineer called the sheriff's office to report someone standing on the tracks.

Judice says it's considered a suicide and attempted murder.

The woman was reported in stable condition Friday at American Legion Hospital in Crowley.
