A registered sex offender was released from jail in Texas and brought to Baton Rouge on Thursday to face accusations of filming an LSU student in a dorm room shower during the spring semester.
LSU police booked Mystyr Terry Stewart Jr., 28, of Marlin, Texas, into Parish Prison on one count of video voyeurism.
Police issued the warrant for his arrest in April. But once law enforcement authorities found Stewart in Texas, he remained jailed there on outstanding warrants until now, said Capt. Cory Lalonde, an LSU police spokesman.
The incident sparked a review of visitation policies by LSU. Prosecutors have not yet charged Stewart in the incident.
Man shoots, injures girlfriend, kills self
A Baton Rouge man shot his girlfriend, injuring her, then fatally shot himself following an argument between the two early Friday morning, police said.
Lamarcus Ray, 35, died at his Doral Drive home just off Coursey Boulevard from what police described as a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Ray’s 31-year-old girlfriend was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after being shot in the leg, said Cpl. L’Jean McKneely, a Baton Rouge police spokesman.
The shooting remains under investigation.
Woman dragged through parking lot
Baton Rouge police on Thursday arrested a 22-year-old woman accused of deliberately rolling up her car window on another woman’s arm and speeding off, dragging her through a parking lot.
On the evening of Sept. 25, Kayla Green was stopped in her Honda Civic at the apartment complex where her child’s father lives. The man’s girlfriend approached to take several items for the child from the backseat, according to an arrest warrant, but when she reached into the car, Green rolled up the window and peeled off through the parking lot, dragging the woman alongside.
The car reached 35 to 40 mph before Green opened the window and the woman fell onto the asphalt, the warrant says. The woman suffered “serious road-rash lacerations,” the warrant says.
In an unrelated case, Green is accused of fraudulently using a debit card in July belonging to an 85-year-old Baton Rouge man for whom she served as a caretaker.
Green, 4410 Denham St., was booked into Parish Prison on counts of aggravated battery, exploitation of the infirmed and theft of assets of an aged or disabled person.
