A Wichita man has been sentenced to 61 years in prison for robbing and raping a 76-year-old woman.
On Friday, the Sedgwick County prosecutor announced that 18-year-old Marquatesz Redmon had been sentenced Thursday. More than 51 years of the sentence is for the rape conviction. He also will serve time for aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and aggravated intimidation of a witness.
Redmon was a minor in June 2013 when the crimes were committed but was tried as an adult.
Co-defendant John Thompson Jr. was sentenced last month to 10 years and nine months in prison for aggravated robbery, attempted kidnapping and aggravated burglary convictions.
Police say that after the teens broke into the woman’s home, she was sexually assaulted at gunpoint. Authorities used DNA samples to help prosecute the men.
