Monday’s Wheel of Justice report begins with a double homicide investigation on the north shore. According to St Tammany Sheriff Jack Strain, a man and his two-year-old daughter were found shot to death inside their home on Carnation Street in the Abita Nursery subdivision. The mother of the girl, who does not live in the home, made the discovery around 10:00 Monday morning Strain said. Both victims had been shot at a close distance Strain said. He also said, referring to the man who was killed, that deputies had been to the house before for domestic violence and mental health issues.
