Prosecutor: 2 men charged with rape in separate cold cases
CLEVELAND (AP) — A prosecutor says two men have been indicted on rape and other charges in separate cold cases in Cleveland.
Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley said Monday a grand jury has indicted 48-year-old Daniel Fridley on charges that also include kidnapping and felonious assault in the 2002 case where the victim was a legally blind woman. O’Malley says a grand jury indicted 54-year-old Darryl Williams on charges that also include kidnapping and aggravated robbery in the 1998 case where the victim was a 16-year-old girl.
The prosecutor says ongoing testing of rape kits for DNA matches helped lead to the charges.
Authorities say both men were later convicted in other rape cases and are still in prison on those convictions.
Court records don’t show attorneys for either man.
