A man in Chalmette, LA is accused of wielding an ax and killing his wife in front of her home on Wednesday. According to the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office, 56-year-old Mark Owens has been charged with 2nd-degree murder after killing his ex-wife, Kimberly Owens.

Deputy Chief John Doran said Kimberly Owens was believed to have left her home to go to work when her ex-husband emerged, possibly from a hiding place under the home, and attacked her with an ax.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mark Owens left the scene and an arrest warrant was issued. Doran said he surrendered to police soon after the alleged murder. 

Doran said the incident occurred at least partially in front of the victim’s mother and a neighbor.

The couple had been divorced for a couple of years and that there was some type of domestic incident reported two years ago.
