On August 10, 2022, a St. James Parish Grand Jury returned a True Bill of Indictment on 41-year-old Lance Louque of 1351 2nd St. Lutcher, LA on the charge of 1st Degree Murder in connection with the May stabbing death of his mother, 68-year-old Glenda Elder.

          On May 14, 2022, St. James Parish Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a Lutcher residence in reference to an unresponsive female being located under a carport connected to the residence. Upon arrival deputies located a deceased female later identified as Glenda Elder with what appeared to be blood on her shirt. Detectives responded and upon canvassing the scene, observed multiple stab wounds to Elder’s body. Detectives quickly identified Lance Louque as a suspect. Detectives obtained a warrant of arrest for Louque who was subsequently apprehended and booked into the St. James Parish Jail.

          Louque remains incarcerated and held without bond. Assistant District Attorney Bruce Mohon is the lead prosecutor on this case.
