At approximately 2:00 this morning, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a home at 5832 Bennie Lane in Lake Charles in regard to a man, David M. Pendley, 52, who had stabbed his son, 24.
When deputies arrived, the son was at the neighbor’s house. He was transported to a local hospital by ambulance. Deputies made entry into the home and located the father and his wife, Katherine Pendley, 59, both deceased.
