The Caddo Parish Grand Jury returned a number of true bills Tuesday, September 19, 2017, most in connection with sex crimes. One indictment was for second-degree murder.
The indictments for sex crimes were issued under seal, due to the nature of the charges. The accused all were incarcerated at Caddo Correctional Center late September 19.

Charged with obstruction of justice in connection with those two crimes, with her case also under seal, is Tenichia Monieck Wafford, 42, of Harker Heights, Texas. Bond for Tyler and Holman was set at $3 million each, with Wafford’s bond set at $500,000.
