Woman faces charges in stabbing

PRESS RELEASE

Shreveport Police Department

A Shreveport woman faces murder charges in the stabbing death of her husband earlier this month.

On Dec. 4, Shreveport police were called to a mobile home park in the 7400 block of Glen Leaf Lane, where they found an adult male, identified as Louie Cobb, 60, inside the home with what appeared to be a single stab wound to the chest. He was taken to University Health Medical Center, where he later died.

Police detained Cobb’s wife, Linda Cobb, 47, who was on the scene at the time of the stabbing. Following interviews with Mrs. Cobb, she was released pending results of a continuing probe.

On Wednesday, the investigation into the matter determined insufficient evidence to support Mrs. Cobb’s initial claims of self-defense.

Following interviews with Cobb, she was arrested on a single count of second-degree murder and booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
