BAKER - Deputies arrested a man, accused of lying in wait in an attempt to kill his wife.

Details of the incident, which happened Monday, were revealed through arrest records obtained by WBRZ News 2. Sidney Kirk Pecora, 12000 block of Centerra Court, faces a list of charges including attempted murder, false imprisonment and gun and drug charges.

His wife, who was not identified in the records, said she escaped to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office Central substation after Pecora went to the bathroom giving her an opportunity to get her keys and drive to safety. She said she was held captive for an hour and was able to avoid being shot twice by Pecora.

The woman said Pecora grabbed her from behind the front door of their home when she returned from dropping her kids off at school. She said he stuck a gun, wrapped in a plastic bag, at her head.

The victim said Pecora fired two shots at her and she was able to move out of the way of the bullet.

When deputies asked Pecora about bullet holes found in the house, he told them they were old.

Deputies said Pecora was wearing concealable boyd armor when he was arrested. Investigators said they also found steroids and unused syringes in the home.

No bond was set as of this post.
