As many times as necessary


Louisiana wife shoots abusive husband “multiple times.”

By Ramon Antonio Vargas

A woman fatally shot her husband as he beat her and tried to strangle her in a Metairie home Friday, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said Saturday. Investigators did not book her with a crime after questioning her.
Jefferson Parish Coroner Gerry Cvitanovich identified the slain man as Ian Mastin, 27.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, Mastin’s 27-year-old wife called 911 just before 9 p.m. and reported she had shot her husband in their home in the 2900 block of Transcontinental Drive.
Responding deputies found Mastin had been shot multiple times. He died at the scene. Deputies took his wife into custody and brought her to the agency’s detective bureau to be interrogated.
The Sheriff’s Office said the woman cooperated with investigators and “provided a detailed and well-documented history of physical and psychological abuse” at the hands of Mastin.
