Coroner: Death of fire chief's wife was homicide
COVINGTON - A Louisiana coroner says somebody killed a fire chief's wife before her house burned down. The sheriff says his investigation doesn't necessarily confirm that Nanette Krentel's death was homicide.
St. Tammany Parish Coroner Charles Preston said in a news release Wednesday that two autopsies and a forensic reconstruction all indicate homicide.
Sheriff Randy Smith says he and representatives of the State Fire Marshal's Office will hold a news conference about the case Thursday.
Krentel's husband is St. Tammany District 12 Fire Chief Stephen Krentel.
