SHONGALOO – A man has been arrested for second-degree murder following what Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies said was a domestic dispute.

Deputies arrested Lee Vester Crow Jr., 47, of the 200 block of Henry Williams Road, late Wednesday.

“He confessed and told us where the gun was,” Sheriff Gary Sexton said, adding it was found along Highway 79 in Claiborne Parish.
Around 4:30 a.m. that morning, Sexton said a 911 call came in regarding a car crash on Henry Williams Road, between Highways 2 and 160.

“When our deputies got there and saw the amount of damage to the car, it was not enough to constitute a fatality in a wreck,” he said. “They got suspicious and the person inside the vehicle was not responsive.”

Upon further investigation, they found Kameka Brantley, 42, of Henry Williams Road, and it appeared that she’d been shot, he said.
“Through the investigation, we learned she and her husband had a domestic dispute around midnight,” Sexton said.

An All Points Bulletin was issued and the Haynesville Police Department in Claiborne Parish later found Crow and detained him for questioning.

It isn’t the first time the sheriff’s office has dealt with Crow, Sexton said.

“They were headed back to court in October on a domestic dispute from a few months ago,” he said. “We’ve responded to that location on at least two different occasions.”

He was arrested later that evening on the above charge. Bond was set at $250,000.
