A Jefferson Parish grand jury has handed up indictments in three cases, charging one man with murder and two others with separate rapes. One of the two was 16 at the time of the alleged crime.
Antoine Green, who turned 17 this month, was charged with aggravated rape and aggravated burglary in a July 10 incident in which he is accused of burglarizing a Clifford Court home in Waggaman.
Arrest records indicate he had a weapon at the time he is accused of raping the victim, who was 16.
Green was been held at Rivarde Juvenile Detention Center but has been ordered to the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center. Bail was set at $600,000.
The case will be heard by Judge Adrian Adams, of 24th Judicial District Court in Gretna.
Also indicted was Albert “Wayne” Cox, 37, of Kenner, who is accused of second-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon.
Cox was arrested by U.S. marshals in October outside a Baton Rouge bus station and accused of killing Cornell Woods, a 42-year-old father of three, on 27th Street in Kenner. Witnesses told investigators the shooting may have stemmed from a dispute over a woman.
Cox is being held in the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center on $900,000 bail. The case will be heard by Judge John Molaison.
The grand jury also indicted Timmy Doucet, 39, on a charge of aggravated rape of a juvenile younger than 13. The indictment alleges the rapes occurred between June 2011, when the victim was 8, and June 2014, when the victim was 11.
Bail for Doucet, who lives in Marrero, was set at $500,000. His case will be heard by Judge June Berry Darensburg.
