LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - A jury in the penalty phase of the Kevin Daigle trial has decided on the death penalty.

Closing arguments were held in Lake Charles today, due to the threat of severe weather in Lafayette.

The state was seeking death for Daigle for the first-degree murder of Trooper Steven Vincent, while the defense worked to convince the jury that Daigle’s life should be spared.
