SLIDELL, La. (AP) — Police in Louisiana say a 39-year-old woman is accused of stabbing her 65-year-old aunt to death.

Slidell Police Detective Daniel Seuzeneau (SOO-zuh-noh) says Kenya Despenza was re-arrested Thursday on a charge of first-degree murder after further investigation.

Police found Dianne Bercy’s body after her sister called Monday, saying she’d been unable to reach her for days.

The coroner identified Bercy on Tuesday and found that she had been stabbed multiple times.

Seuzeneau says Despenza originally was arrested Tuesday on a car theft charge, after being found with Bercy’s car.
