Lateisha Jandreau, arrested and charged in connection with her husbandâ€™s murder, is in the news today. Get the story here, and see photos and video here.
A strange story that reads like â€˜made for TV movieâ€™ is playing out in North Carolina this week. A kick-boxing, body building wife has been arrested for the alleged murder of her husband, who had gone missing last week. When Paul Jandreau didnâ€™t show up for work last Wednesday, his friends knew something was awryâ€”the retired Navy man was never late.
Authorities were called and a missing persons report was apparently filed. Over the weekend, Sherriffâ€™s deputies were able to obtain a warrant to search the coupleâ€™s home. Guess who was found in the closet like a kid playing hide-and-seek? Yep, it was Lateisha Jandreau.
Sure, I know she is innocent until proven guiltyâ€”thatâ€™s the beauty of our justice system, but she sure was acting suspiciousâ€¦
Neighbors say that just one day after her husband went missing, they saw Lateisha and her brother loading up furniture into the back of a truck. So much for being subtle!
On top of that, the alleged victimâ€™s brother claims that the couple was having some serious marital issues. Mike Jandreau said:
â€œHe’d been talking about divorce for weeks. He told me she was cheating on him and that he had plenty of evidenceâ€¦I asked him if he was OK and he said, ‘ I’m not worried about anything.’ He said he just needed to get her out of his house so he could have his life back.”
It should be interesting to see how this one plays out. It doesnâ€™t seem to me that marital problems are a strong enough motive. Your thoughts?
