GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -

The woman, whose boyfriend was shot to death over the weekend at her daughter's birthday party at a hotel, was arrested for allegedly breaking into the dead man's car.

Sgt. Steven Nethken with the Gonzales Police Department said Ebony Bailey was charged with simple burglary and simple criminal damage to property.

He said she admitted to breaking into the vehicle. He added she was booked into the Ascesion Parish Detention Center in Donaldsonville and has already been released on bond.

Louis Talbert, 49, was shot at the Hampton Inn on Outfitter Drive in Gonzales Saturday. He died at the scene.

Alden Warner, the father of Bailey's children was charged with manslaughter and carrying a concealed weapon.

Talbert's family members told police when they went to pick up his vehicle Sunday morning a window was broken and it looked like someone had rummaged through it.

Bailey was questioned about it and investigators said she confessed to the crime.

The shooting happened during a birthday party at the hotel for Bailey's 7-year-old daughter.

Bailey told responding officers Warner made a comment to her that Talbert didn't like and they got into a fight. She said after Talbert hit Warner several times Warner pulled a gun and shot Talbert.

The shooting happened in the room where the party was taking place with the children there, but none of them were hurt.
