The deceased was identified by the St. Tammany Parish Coroner’s Office as 55-year-old Darren Husak of Franklinton.

Bent was arrested and booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on one count of Second-Degree Murder.
“Once again another domestic-related matter has turned deadly,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “My prayers go out to all family members involved.”
