William Paul Morgan’s second-degree kidnapping trial has been continued until next year.
The trial, which was scheduled for Monday, has been reset for Jan. 28 to allow time for a crime lab report to be completed.
Morgan’s kidnapping charges stem from an Oct. 7, 2011 incident. Police said Morgan, 39, kidnapped his pregnant wife from the orthodontist office where she worked.
Morgan has been jailed at Calcasieu Correction Center since Oct. 2011 on an $850,000 bond. He is also charged with false imprisonment and violation of a protective order.
Ceaser James Williams’ second-degree murder trial was refixed for April 1, 2013.
Williams, 24, is accused of killing 32-year-old Corey Demond Thomas at Sunlight Manor Apartments in May of 2011.
Williams, of Mamou, is being held on a $300,000 bond at CCC. He is also charged with aggravated criminal damage
The state Attorney General’s office will prosecute John and Jennifer Baccigalopi, who are both charged with 10 counts of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile.
King Alexander, John Baccigalopi’s defense attorney, said the District Attorney’s office was recused because a former Department of Family Services investigator who looked into the case is now employed by the District Attorney’s office. She is expected to be a witness in the case, Alexander said.
Jennifer Baccigalopi, 31, is also charged with four counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile, two counts of obscenity and one count of aggravated incest. She is being held on a $385,000 bond at CCC.
John Baccigalopi, 43, is also charged with two counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile, one count of aggravated incest, one count of pornography involving juveniles and one count of obscenity. He is being held on a $1.6 million bond at CCC.
