Father mourns Concordia Parish woman and son found dead, suspect arrested


UPDATE 10:00 p.m. — The loss of someone you love is something most come prepared for. Sunday Jesse Anderson lost two people he loved, his daughter Meghan Watson and her son 12-year-old LaFrederick McCoy.

“She was a daddy’s baby, you know, from day one,” he recollected.

Even after tragedy though, Anderson still has his wits about him as he chuckled about fond memories of his daughter.

“She loved to show her teeth, of course she had more than I do,” Anderson said.

He said it’s through faith in the lord that he keeps a smile on his face.

Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to 211 Anderson road in Clayton. They report that Marvin Watson shot and killed Meghan and LaFrederick. Anderson was napping when it all happened and when he woke up, “Man there were police cars all up and down this road and I wanted to know what the heck was going on,” Anderson said.

Marvin Watson, Meghan’s husband, turned himself into the Adams County Sheriff’s Office in Natchez on Sunday.

Although this loss is a painful one, Anderson takes comfort in knowing that his daughter and grandson are in heaven.

“It was their time and when your time comes you not hoping to get around it,” said Anderson.

Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office state that Martin Watson is facing two counts of first-degree murder and is currently refusing extradition.
