Local chef found guilty of 2nd degree murder

Shreveport, La. - It took a Caddo Parish jury less than an hour to find Mark Colby, 60, guilty of second degree murder in the death of his girlfriend, Angela Godley.

Godley's bullet-ridden body was found in the laundry room of the Bayou Drive home the couple shared. 

After Godley's body was found, police began to search for Colby, and were told he had said he would flee to Mexico rather than go to prison. 

Detectives contacted U.S. Officials and learned his vehicle crossed the Mexican border about an hour after Godley's body was found back in Shreveport. 

He was taken to Del Rio, Texas, and placed in jail to await extradition. 

Shreveport detectives interviewed Colby there, and a few days later, he was brought back to Shreveport and booked into Caddo Correctional Center on Sept. 27, 2014, where he has been ever since. 

Tonight the jury went out at 7:16 p.m., and tapped on the door at 8:06 to tell the bailiff they had a verdict.

Second degree murder carries with it a mandatory life sentence with no possibility of parole, probation or suspension of sentence.
