Caddo Grand Jury Returns Six True Bills
The Caddo Parish Grand Jury returned six indictments Wednesday (8/19.21). Two were for second-degree murder, one was for a parish resident accused of being an accessory after-the-fact to second-degree murder, one was for an aggravated battery, and two were for sexual crimes -- aggravated rape and third-degree rape -- and thus were filed under seal. The indictment for third-degree rape also was issued as a secret indictment.

Ms. Jennings, 30, was shot in the 5600 block of Hearne Avenue and died shortly after at Ochner LSU Health hospital. The case is docket No. 382518. Charles Dewayne Combs also is charged with second-degree battery in connection with an April 4, 2021 assault on Syncere Brown. That case is docket No. 382623.
Andrea Shantanel Mitchell, 32, of Shreveport, was charged in a separate indictment as an accessory after-the-fact to Ms. Jennings' slaying. Her case is docket No. 382614.
