Wife allegedly kills estranged husband in front of 2-year-old daughter

A woman allegedly shot and killed her estranged husband outside a Louisiana Walmart last week, according to police.

Police say they found him lying on the ground with a single gunshot wound to the chest. Emergency personnel responded and attempted to resuscitate the man, but were unable to.

According to a report obtained by News Channel 5 filed with the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office on May 28, 2018, Coutee filed a complaint against Giles alleging that she slapped him while "they were exchanging custody".

There were three children present at the time of the shooting.

Coutee alleged that Giles had been abusive toward him, with his attorney filing a motion for a new trial that said 9th Judicial District Court Judge Patricia Koch's August 20 ruling awarding joint custody was "against the law and evidence", court records obtained by the Alexandria Daily Town Talk showed.

Coutee filed for divorce from Giles on June 8, 2018.

All three children were also taken to APD, where the Department of Children and Family Services picked them up.

Vegas Golden Knights give extension to Max Pacioretty
His contract slid last season and if he doesn't make the Canadiens out of training camp, it will do so for the second time. Pacioretty has not yet signed an extension with the Golden Knights and Montreal is not retaining any salary on his deal.


He said that he wanted the incident in police records, but didn't want to press charges.

Coutee also showed the deputy a screen shot of a text Giles allegedly sent to a mutual friend bragging about hitting him. She was being held at the Rapides Parish Detention Center.

4. Kayla Giles Was a Veteran A legal agreement between the couple reveals that Kayla Jean Giles was a veteran, according to the Alexandria Town Talk newspaper.

The Alexandria Town Talk identified the victim as Thomas Coutee Jr.

She is said to have added "It felt good though", after reportedly slapping Coutee's face when he leaned into her vehicle to give his children a final hug before their mother drove them off.

Kayla Coutee was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.
