BERNARD PARISH, La. (4/23/19) 57-year-old Mark Owens has been scheduled to go to trial May 20th.
However, he entered his plea in Saint Bernard Parish this morning, earning himself a life sentence in court, taking their mother away from their children.
Authorities say that Owens had hidden under his ex-wife’s home, killing her as she left for work.
His former mother-in-law had tried to stop him, escaping and calling 9-1-1 when he tried to attack her.
Owens had been released from a mental hospital two days before the killing.
