A Lincoln County jury on Tuesday found Kevin Higgins guilty of raping a 92-year old woman in June of last year, according to a report in The Interior Journal.

The jury recommended three life sentences, plus 20-years, according to the newspaper.

Higgins broke-in to a home on Star Avenue in Stanford and raped the woman, who suffered life-threatening injuries, according to the report.

Investigators said DNA evidence linked Higgins to the rape.

Higgins was accused of committing a burglary at another Star Avenue home after the rape, where the family found him asleep the next morning, according to the newspaper report.

Court records showed Higgins had been released from jail from an unrelated case just days before the rape.

The Interior Journal reported that Higgins was found guilty of the following charges:
  • First-Degree Rape with Serious Physical Injury
  • Two counts of First Degree Burglary
  • Two counts of Theft
  • Two counts of Being A Persistent Felony Offender
