Desoto Parish shooting trial underway in Mansfield

Posted: Updated:

MANSFIELD, La. (AP) - A July 2012 shooting that left a DeSoto Parish woman blind in one eye is the subject of a trial unfolding this week in Mansfield.

25-year-old Cory Leone is on trial, charged with the attempted second-degree murder of his ex-girlfriend, 21-year-old Breanna Pearce.

On Wednesday, Pearce tearfully testified that Leone shot her in the head as they drove home from to Zwolle (ZWAH' lee) from her birthday celebration in Shreveport. Leone shot himself in the head after shooting Pearce.

Pearce said Leone had become jealous after she talked to one of her male relatives and his friends at a Shreveport casino bar.
