The man accused of shooting a Tulane medical school student faces new charges in the kidnapping and rape of a couple that occurred less than 24 hours later, according to court documents.

A new 23-count indictment by an Orleans Parish grand jury includes six counts of first-degree rape against 21-year-old Euric Cain. Each count carries a mandatory life sentence upon conviction.

On Nov. 21, Cain allegedly carjacked a man and woman in Treme and forced them at gunpoint to drive to the Desire neighborhood, where he raped and robbed both. In addition to the rape charges, Cain faces three counts of armed robbery, three counts of aggravated kidnapping, two counts of carjacking, one count each of sexual battery and attempted aggravated rape.

Cain also faces attempted first-degree murder in the shooting of student Peter Gold.

A final charge stems from his alleged attempt to use a credit card stolen from one of his rape victims.

Cain’s girlfriend, 17-year-old Nictoria Washington, also faces additional charges in the new indictment, including accessory to armed robbery and accessory to aggravated kidnapping in addition to accessory to attempted first-degree murder. Washington is accused of helping Cain hide in the days following the shooting of Gold.

Cain’s bond is now $11.7 million; Washington’s is $400,000.
