Kolande Schelese Williams, 38, of 3305 Sandy Drive in Baker, was charged last Wednesday with the second-degree murder of Kimberly Stewart, 31.
Baker Police Chief Mike Knaps said Williams shot Stewart after the two women argued in Williams' home in Buffwood Estates in Baker.
Williams called police about 11:44 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 14, stating that her girlfriend of 14 years, Stewart, was at Williams' house when she returned from the store but was not supposed to be there, said Baker Police Chief Mike Knaps.
Williams advised the 911 operator that Stewart would not leave her home after being told to exit the premises. Williams also told Baker Police she shot Stewart when she started advancing towards her, said Knaps.
Baker Police said they found Stewart dead inside Williams home about noon.
Knaps said that after being questioned by investigators, Williams admitted she had had a bad argument with Stewart and shot her several times.
The women had been living together for several years but a restraining order had been obtained after their relationship began to sour, said Knaps.
Williams was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison in January and charged with second-degree murder, violation of a protective order and illegal use of a firearm, Knaps said.
If convicted, Williams faces a prison term of mandatory life.
District Judge Richard Anderson will be the presiding judge in the case.
