EBR District Attorney to present 2017 domestic violence report
BATON ROUGE - East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore is presenting his second annual domestic violence report Thursday morning.
Last year, East Baton Rouge saw 14 domestic homicides with four of them resulting in murder-suicides. In 2017, Baton Rouge saw two domestic violence deaths within the first 10 days of the new year. Moore hopes to put a stop to those numbers rising in 2018.
