BENTON - A 25-year-old man is in custody after he allegedly shot his estranged wife in the stomach during a dispute at their home.
The Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office says 25-year-old Taylor Coffey, of Benton, was arrested Monday on charges of aggravated second-degree battery, obstruction of justice and possession of marijuana.
The Shreveport Times reports detectives also arrested his neighbor, 27-year-old Brandy Mendoza, for obstruction of justice for hiding Coffey at her home during a search for him.
The weapon used in the shooting was also recovered. It was unknown if either suspect is represented by an attorney.
