Michael Lawrence Tyler, a 46-year-old Prairieville resident whose performance name is Mystikal, faces one count each of first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping.

Tyler has been in Caddo Correctional Center since surrendering to authorities Aug. 21.

His next court date is Jan. 18 and could include a motion to reduce his $3 million bond, the Caddo district attorney’s office reports.

Tyler is one of three people who have been charged in connection with the assault.

He’s not the only party being held responsible. A grand jury also has indicted:

Averweone Darnell Holman, 26, of Shreveport, on one count each of first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping; and,

Tenichia Monieck Wafford, 42, of Harker Heights, Texas, on one count of obstruction of justice.

We’ll see how this plays out.
