BATON ROUGE, La., Dec. 27 (UPI) -- A Baton Rouge, La., man charged with the deaths of three women may be involved in more slayings, police say.

Jeffery Lee Guillory, charged Dec. 16 with three counts of second-degree murder, is being eyed as a suspect in other cases where Baton Rouge women with drug or prostitution histories have been found dead, the Baton Rouge Advocate reported Sunday.

Baton Rouge Police spokesman Sgt. Don Kelly told the newspaper: "The fact that we have linked him to three cases means he clearly remains a potential suspect in any number of similar unsolved murders that occurred in Baton Rouge in the late 1990s to the early 2000s, particularly those involving black female victims who engaged in high-risk lifestyles."

The Advocate said an examination of its archives indicates that 10 women, including the three Guillory has been accused of killing, have been stabbed, strangled or beaten to death in a four-square-mile area east of downtown Baton Rouge since 1999.

The newspaper said most of the victims were black women between the ages of 29 and 46 with drug or prostitution arrests who were found naked or partially naked in or near parks or vacant buildings.
