ASCENSION PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

A manhunt has ended for a suspect, who is facing murder charges in Ascension Parish after allegedly stabbing his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend in a trailer park, according to the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office. Investigators say that Jesus Andrade Monterrossa, 25, had a verbal argument with his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend, 24-year-old Hilario Monterrossa, after she refused to let Hilario visit their 7-month-old son.

Authorities say Jesus and Hilario engaged into a verbal argument over the phone, and Jesus urged Hilario to come to his residence and settle the issue face to face. Moments later, Hilario’s cousin brought him to the residence located at Susan’s Place Trailer Park on Coontrap Road.

Investigators say they later learned that both Jesus and Hilario were intoxicated.

Deputies say Hilario forced his way into the home, and then he and Jesus began fighting. As a result, Hilario was fatally stabbed. Jesus allegedly then turned to chase Hilario’s relative through the trailer park with a knife but the relative got away.

Jesus fled the scene, and the APSO launched a search for his whereabouts. Deputies received assistance from the Gonzales Police Department and the K9 team of the Elayn Hunt Correctional Center.

He, later, turned himself in and he was arrested and booked into the Ascension Parish Jail on one count of 2nd Degree Murder and one count of Attempted 2nd Degree Murder. No bond has been set yet.

Authorities say that families have confirmed that Jesus Monterrossa and the stabbing death victim are not related.
