Cousin was arrested on the warrant for one count of  L.R.S.14:30.1 Second-degree Murder and will be booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail

Identity of the victim and cause and manner of death will be released from the St. Tammany Parish Coroner’s Office.  No additional information will be released at this time.
