NEW IBERIA (AP) — The Iberia Parish Coroner's Office has identified the victim of a Tuesday night stabbing as Lolita Bailey, whose 13-year-old stepson is being held on a count of second-degree murder.

Coroner Dr. Carl Ditch said in a news release received by The Advocate that Bailey died of multiple stab wounds.

Bailey's stepson was transported to St. James Juvenile Detention Center on Tuesday.

Sheriff's Capt. Ryan Turner said a friend walked in while the attack was occurring.

Iberia officials have not released the name of the suspect because of his age.

NOBODY made him do it.He chose to do it on his own free will.Being 13 years old is old enough to know that it is not OK to stab someone REPEATEDLY.

Title: Recomposed families

The killer is a young boy,therefore we can easily understand the reasons behind this action.A child is certainly negatively influenced when their parents get a divorce.It seems as their whole life is now drowning.This negative influence gets even bigger when one parents gets married again.Frustration is now on its peak,attention to the child is limited...When the time of a fight comes,feelings of isolation come out and actions that will be regreted are made.Of course,bloodshed is not the solution.Yet,how can we assure that recomposed families will set the foundations for a life in harmony?Both parents have to be in good terms with each other,so as the child sees no difference after the divorce.All the members of the family ought to get along with the new partner,so no feelings of hate are born into the child.More steps are advisable,but cannot be extensively analyzed here.
