KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Michigan Attorney General Monday announced criminal charges against a Tennessee truck driver for repeatedly raping a woman at knife-point in April 2008.
Calvin Ray Kelly, 57, was arrested Sept. 9 in Shelby County in Tennessee and is charged with one count of kidnapping, three counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct, and one count of attempted first degree criminal sexual conduct.
Kelly waived extradition and will be brought back to Michigan for trial; he faces life in prison if convicted.
The Kalamazoo victim reported the assault on April 8, 2008 when she ran across U.S. 131 to reach an officer and report being repeatedly raped. DNA evidence from the case was entered into a national DNA database; Kelly was linked to the rape in 2012.
