Man accused of killing wife, shooting at police was out on bond for previous rape charge
BATON ROUGE - A man accused of killing his wife and firing shots at police over the weekend was under house arrest with an ankle monitor pending his trial for an earlier rape charge.
Cedrick Dabney, 52, was arrested after firing gunshots at officers who responded to the deadly domestic situation on Elgin Street late Friday night.
Shalama Dabney, 51, was killed, police said. The woman was shot and killed by her husband around 11:30 p.m. Friday.
Police said Dabney was arrested after firing at officers. Police did not reveal if officers fired back, but it did not appear any officers were injured.
East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore confirmed to WBRZ on Monday that Dabney was out on a $60,000 bond related to a rape charge and was fitted with a monitoring device pending a trial in that case.
Police said Dabney was arrested without injury and booked into jail on murder, attempted murder of a police officer and illegal use of a weapon charges.
A judged ordered Tuesday that Dabney be held without bond.
