This week, a Louisiana judge sentenced a 29-year-old man to life in prison for the 2019 murder of his girlfriend — an officer with the Shreveport Police Department.

On April 20, jurors found Tre’Veon Demarcus Anderson guilty of the second-degree murder of Officer Chatéri Alyse Payne, 22.

Payne, a rookie, was found fatally shot, in her uniform, outside the home she shared with Anderson.

The couple’s 2-year-old daughter was inside the home at the time of the Jan. 9, 2019, killing. Payne was killed as she was preparing to go to work.

District Judge John D. Mosely Jr. handed down the life sentence Tuesday.

Anderson will never become parole eligible, as he was also sentenced to an additional 30 years.
