“The Ville Platte Police Department received a call about a stabbing at 700 block of Rev. E. D. Alfred Street. Upon arrival, officers found Jaqueric Gallow stabbed in the residence and the suspect was labeled as Jasmine Gallow,” said Ville Platte Police Chief Neal Lartigue.

He tells News 10 Jasmine Gallow is the victim’s wife and they’re trying to determine if the stabbing was in self defense.

“After further investigation, it was determined that there was an argument that took place at the residence, and she was brought in, questioned, and released pending further investigation,” said the chief.
