NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A St. Tammany Parish grand jury has indicted a man accused of sexually assaulting and drugging a woman who died from an overdose in his Lacombe home.

John Jenkins is charged with second degree murder, but authorities say evidence in the home also led to an indictment on a charge of sexual abuse of an animal.

Authorities say they also found pornography involving sexual abuse of an animal in Jenkins’ home.

The grand jury also indicted 47-year-old Angela Griffin on a charge of sexual abuse of an animal in connection with the case.
