La. man charged after driving with wife's body

Authorities say a south Louisiana man has been accused of murder after driving for about six hours with his wife's body before entering a police station to say he killed her.

Zachary police Capt. David McDavid says officers found the body of 47-year-old Pepettra Guidroz in the back of a Ford Mustang on Wednesday. The woman apparently had been stabbed to death.

The victim's husband _ 53-year-old Stanley Guidroz _ was returned to Houma where he was booked with second-degree murder. It couldn't be determined if he has an attorney.

McDavid says Guidroz said he'd stabbed his wife around 5:30 or 6 a.m., near a Burger King in Houma and then drove around for hours before stopping in Zachary.

McDavid says the woman apparently was killed after an argument.
