A 44-year-old Baton Rouge man once described by East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III as a menace will spend the rest of his life in jail on a sex-crime conviction.
But now Moore and his staff are pondering whether to proceed with charges against Percy Cage in the 2009 slayings of a pregnant woman and her teenage brother and the 2008 shooting injury of a former girlfriend.
Moore said the victims' families have been and will continue to be involved in the discussions.
Those charges include second-degree murder and second-degree feticide in the 2009 shooting deaths of 31-year-old Tanya Smith and her brother, 15-year-old Renea Boreaux, while they slept in their home. Smith was eight months pregnant. Police said Cage was her ex-boyfriend.
