Dicus was taken into custody upon the discovery of the 21-year-old woman. Guidry stated that Discus did not provide any kind of statement, but he later gave a confession to the murder.
Guidry added that further investigation revealed the incident took place around 11 a.m. Wednesday.
Sheriff Guidry says evidence shows a kitchen knife was used in the murder.
"Everything happened on the property," said Guidry. "And all parts and pieces were recovered and submitted for evidence."
The motive behind the incident is still under investigation.
