Man accused of killing Shreveport police officer now charged with obscenity

Grover Cannon charged with obscenity

BATON ROUGE, LA (KSLA) - The man accused of killing Shreveport police officer Thomas LaValley in 2015, is now facing a charge of obscenity.

KSLA obtained a booking report accusing Grover Cannon of performing a sex act on himself, while in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

According to the records, it happened on Friday, April 5 at 6 a.m. while Cannon was inside of his cell.

Cannon was being held in the prison during jury selection for his first-degree murder trial.


That trial, as we reported April 18, is now on hold after the Louisiana Supreme Court ordered the jury process to start all over.

There is no word on when or where that will happen.
