DNA matches in La. rapes from 1992, '93
NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans police and prosecutors say DNA matches have brought indictment against two men in separate rapes, one in 1993 and the other in 1992.
The Times-Picayune reports that 48-year-old John Alexcee Jr. was indicted last week on charges of aggravated rape and kidnapping against a woman who was attacked by a man who stopped her by shooting through a car window.
And 36-year-old Derrick Woodberry is charged with aggravated rape and aggravated kidnapping in an April 1992 assault of a woman who said she was robbed and raped by two men in New Orleans East.
Both DNA analyses were among 400 recently run through a federal database to clear a backlog. Court records show that Woodberry's DNA was matched in June, and Alexcee's in 2006.
