Thibodaux parents arrested after allegedly killing infant daughter
THIBODAUX - A woman was arrested in connection to her 11-month-old daughter's death nearly two weeks after the child's father was arrested.
Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office said 21-year-old Kageionna Butler was arrested Oct. 10 and charged with principal to second-degree murder.
The sheriff's office said deputies were asked by a family member to check on 11-month-old Zabria Guidry on Sept. 28. Deputies talked to Jake Guidry, Zabria's father, who said his daughter died after he hit her too hard.
Deputies found Zabria's body in the back of Guidry's car.
Initially, deputies did not believe Butler was involved, and Guidry was charged with second-degree murder.
Since Sunday, both Butler and Guidry have been arrested. Both of their bonds are set at $1 million.
