Lake Charles, LA –


Yesterday evening around 5:40 p.m. Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a home on Gragg Road in Bell City in reference to a possible homicide.  The caller, identified as Yvette G. Logan, 60, advised dispatchers she shot her husband, William G. Logan, 67, and he was dead inside the home. 


When deputies arrived at the home, they made contact with Yvette and were able to call her out of the residence and take her into custody without incident.  When deputies entered the residence, they located William, deceased from gunshot wounds.  When detectives spoke with Yvette, she confirmed she shot her husband.


Yvette was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with 2nd degree murder.  Her bond has not yet been set.


The investigation is ongoing.  CPSO Detective Lauren Manuel is the lead investigator on this case.  


An arrest is an indication that probable cause exists to believe the subject was involved in the offense alleged.   A person is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
