The Grand Jury of Caddo Parish handed up four true bills in its returns Wednesday, July 19, 2023.


Two indictments against one man centered on events surrounding an April 2023 homicide, while the others two charged three men in connection with two separate first-degree rapes.


In the first two indictments, Edduin Silva, 19, of Shreveport, is charged with second-degree murder in connection with the April 25, 2023 slaying of Amaya Jacobs. Ms. Jacobs, 35, was found deceased with multiple gunshot wounds, in her vehicle in the middle of the road near the intersection of Fairfax Avenue and Morningside Drive in the Werner Park neighborhood. She was the victim of an apparent attempted carjacking. That indictment is docket No. 395241.


In the second indictment, Silva is charged with resisting a police officer with force or violence, in connection with his laterĀ apprehension on the murder charge, in docket No. 396462.


Silva is in custody at Caddo Correction Center, under bonds totalling $550,000 for the two offenses.


Silva’s indictment was returned with two aliases, Edduin Alvarez and Edduin Silvas. He is booked at CCC under the name Edduin AlvarezĀ Silvas.


The two first-degree rape indictments were returned under seal, due to the nature of the charges, with few details available.


In one indictment, Claude Capers, 26, of Shreveport, is named, while the fourth indictment charges two men, Tyrone Pickrom, 47, and Demarquis Davis, 34, both of Shreveport. All are at CCC, with Capers booked April 19, 2023, with no bond set, and Pickrom and Davis both booked June 8, also with no bond set.
