And, police say it's not the first time this ex-husband has tried to hurt his ex-wife. News Channel Five's Brooke Buford has the story.
Police say it's not the first time Gregory Washington has tried to hurt his ex-wife, Jacquelyn.
"There was a situation about nine or 10 years ago involving these two where he attempted to run her over with a vehicle," said Lt. Charles Curry of the Winnfield Police Department. "And he served nine years in the department of corrections for that crime."
But, this time police say, this fight ended with Jacquelyn Washington being killed.
"This morning around 3:30 am, officers responded to a shorts fired call that ended up being a domestic violence related homicide," said Curry.
Police say they believe the two got into another domestic dispute. Jacquelyn was found shot and stabbed multiple times in her duplex on Allen Street. They believe her ex-husband pulled the trigger, then fled to Grant Parish where he was captured Wednesday afternoon.
Troy Washington, a neighbor who's not related, says he was stunned when he heard the news.
"They told me she didn't make it. And it blew my mind," said Troy Washington.
The Jacquelyn he knew, was a kind hearted lady.
"She had something good to say to you, you know. I didn't see nothing bad in her or nothing like that. She was kind," he said.
Police tell us they don't have a motive or an official cause of death. For now, they're calling this another example of domestic violence turned deadly.
Gregory Washington is being charged with one count of second degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon.
