A Baton Rouge man was indicted Thursday in the Sept. 14 stabbing death of a 57-year-old man during a fight inside the victim’s Edwin Street duplex.
An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury charged Corey Moore, 44, 2739 68th Ave., with second-degree murder in the killing of Cedric Hampton Sr.
Audrey Hampton, Cedric Hampton Sr.’s mother, has said detectives told her he was stabbed when he tried to diffuse an argument between Moore — who had a knife — and a woman.
Moore was on supervised parole for attempted armed robbery and simple burglary convictions at the time of the incident, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
Moore would face a mandatory sentence of life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder.
The case has been assigned to state District Judge Don Johnson.
