A Sulphur woman accused of killing her boyfriend after an argument in early 2021, has been convicted of second-degree murder.

Sentencing for Kerri S. Monic has been scheduled for Nov. 4 before Judge Kendrick Guidry in 14th Judicial District Court. Monic is facing a mandatory life sentence without the benefit of parole.

Monic was arrested on Jan. 21, 2021, after Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call about the body of a man found in a home on Walker Road in Sulphur.

When deputies arrived, they found the body of William S. Clark of Carlyss.

Monic — who was Clark’s girlfriend — initially told detectives she was not home when the shooting occurred. She later told detectives she and Clark had been having an argument, at which time she retrieved a handgun and shot him.

The murder weapon was later found inside Monic’s vehicle.
