LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — The wife of a convicted sex offender accused of killing two teenagers and kidnapping a third has been arrested in the case.
Tori L. Broussard, 41, of Lake Charles, was arrested Wednesday on charges of accessory after the fact to first-degree rape and accessory after the fact to molestation of a juvenile, said Kayle Vincent, spokeswoman for the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office. Broussard is free after posting a $50,000 bond.
Her husband, Neil Broussard, 51, is wanted on charges of first-degree rape and molestation of a juvenile in Calcasieu Parish, authorities said. A Calcasieu Parish judge set his bond at $4 million. He was also convicted in 2005 and 2011 of molesting juveniles and is awaiting trial on sex charges in Texas.
Neil Broussard is also accused of shooting and killing 17-year-old Kyla Hidalgo and 18-year-old Kaleb Charlton early Wednesday. He was arrested in the Ragley area after workers at a Dollar General store recognized him and locked him in the store until police arrived.
