Felony charges have been filed in the Independence rape on February 2016, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.
Brady Newman-Caddell faces Rape 1st Degree, two counts of Sodomy 1st Degree and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.*
According to court records, the defendant told police that he and another man went to the victim's apartment and had sex with her, while her child was in the bed with her. The victim told police that she didn't not fight the suspects and tried to make them think she wouldn't call police. DNA from the crime scene was later connected to a rape in Johnson County, Kan., in which the defendant was arrested and charged. While in custody there, Independence detectives talked to the defendant, who stated he had participated in the Independence rape.
This case remains under investigation and other charges are possible.
Prosecutors requested a bond of $150,000.
