A Jefferson Parish grand jury this week handed up indictments against three men involved in two separate rape cases.
In one of the cases, 47-year-old Tori Klein is charged with breaking into a home in the 900 block of Athania Parkway in Metairie and raping a 42-year-old woman who was sleeping there, court records show. Investigators said they arrested Klein, of Metairie, on May 13 after his DNA was found on evidence recovered at the crime scene.
Klein is facing counts of aggravated rape and aggravated burglary. In 2012, he was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to theft, court records show.
In the other case, 26-year-old Pierre “Bruh” Braddy of Jackson, Miss., and Willard “KB” Anthony of Madison, Miss., are each charged with the aggravated rape of a 24-year-old woman on April 12. Court documents accuse Braddy and Anthony of forcing the woman to give them both oral and vaginal sex.
Anthony is also charged with the human trafficking of that woman as well as another, aged 21. Additionally, Braddy is charged with the human trafficking of a third woman, who is 26.
Investigators arrested Braddy and Anthony while probing a report that a Florida woman had been drugged, beaten and forced into prostitution in the New Orleans area. Sheriff’s Office vice detectives found that woman at a motel in Harvey during a prostitution sting operation on April 13.
Authorities apprehended Anthony shortly after the woman was discovered in the hotel, and Braddy was taken into custody in May after being extradited from Mississippi. Aside from rape and human trafficking, Anthony is charged with committing second-degree battery, aggravated battery and sexual battery on the 24-year-old woman authorities say was raped.
Braddy is also charged with obstruction of justice, accused of tampering with evidence, including a Chevrolet Suburban, a handgun and money.
Grand jurors handed up the indictments against Klein, Anthony and Braddy in Jefferson Parish state Judge John Molaison Jr.’s courtroom on Thursday. Aggravated rape convictions carry mandatory life imprisonment.
