Sulphur 17-year-old stabs elderly couple in their driveway

An elderly couple was stabbed by a 17-year-old in the driveway of their home in Calcasieu Parish. Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso says 69-year-old Robert Anderson is deceased, and his wife 57-year-old Rita Anderson is in critical condition at a local hospital. Mancuso says Antonieo Smith of Sulphur attacked the couple as they were coming home. Mancuso says Smith knew the Andersons.

“He was an acquaintance. I think he had a girlfriend in the family or something at one point,” Mancuso said.

Mancuso says Smith was arrested less than 20 minutes after fleeing the scene, when he wrecked a stolen vehicle in front of a sheriff’s deputy then tried to run away. Mancuso says Smith also robbed and vandalized the Andersons’ home.

“He was inside the house before they arrived home. He had already done some property damage inside the home, and when they arrived at home, they actually never got to go inside the house. He met them at the door and started stabbing them,” Mancuso said.

Smith has been charged with 2nd degree murder, attempted 2nd degree murder, armed robbery, aggravated burglary, possession of stolen items, and several traffic charges. His bond has been set at $2-million. Mancuso says the violent acts took place between the front door and the driveway of the Andersons’ home.

“They’re good people, had never done anything to him. It really is a sick, senseless act of violence. It truly is,” Mancuso said.

    After meeting separately with Secretary of Defense James Mattis, both Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain said the military should do more to keep members of Congress aware of its counterterrorism operations around the world. Sen. Graham told reporters that one of the open questions surrounding the ambush in Niger, which killed four Americans, is whether it was the result of an intelligence failure.“It’s too early to say. That’s exactly the questions we should be asking ourselves. In war you fail, you make mistakes and the whole goal is to learn from your mistakes and not repeat them.” Graham said Sen. McCain will likely hold a hearing on the operation, and the strategy more broadly, next week. A spokeswoman for the Senate Armed Services Committee did not comment.Graham also said the military will likely change its rules of engagement in Africa, and anywhere else they need to be changed, so that forces can hit targets based on their status – for example, a member of the...
