Lloyd Wendell Wings

A man has been sentenced to 17 years in prison after admitting to raping and robbing a young woman more than a decade ago. Lloyd Wendell Wings59, evaded responsibility for years, but authorities say they were able to find him thanks to new advances in DNA technology.

He will serve consecutive sentences for two counts of rape as well as the specification of having a firearm on him, according to online records. Ailes must also serve 10-year prison sentences for two counts of aggravated burglary and two counts of aggravated robbery – but those custodial sentences will run alongside the rape charges. The Butler County, Ohio judge credited Ailes with 204 days in jail.

Ailes, who was an Indiana resident, has been in the local jail since his Dec. 9 arrest, according to online records.

He must also serve five years of post-release control.

Authorities say Ailes attacked a 21-year-old University student in Miami, Ohio on January 9, 2006. At gunpoint, he robbed, bound and raped her in a house outside campus on North Campus Avenue, according to a WLWT-TV report.

“Someone just walked into our house,” the woman’s roommate reportedly said during a 911 call. “My roommate just got raped. Please come. He has a gun and told her he would kill her.

wings would have worked locally as a construction worker the year of the attack.

It will take until 2021 for investigators to solve the case, but they credit two pieces of evidence: (1) Ailes, who was masked, briefly showed the woman his face, giving her something to provide to a cartoonist; and (2) he left DNA at the scene.

The DNA authorities’ DNA narrative is quite twisty. Butler County District Attorney Mike Gmoser said officials were able to track down the suspect’s father based on that evidence. There was a problem though: the father said he didn’t know he had a son.

“That’s what made it so complicated because we were able to find the father, but then we almost reached an impasse in figuring out who the mother was,” Gmoser said, according to WLWT.

However, detectives were able to find her. Again, the development was quite difficult.

“This defendant’s mother did not know that the father was someone other than her husband,” Gmoser continued.

The defense argued that the DNA was tainted because the search warrant had two different names. regarding who technically initiated the search. The judge dismissed a motion that entered that complaint in April. Ailes pleaded guilty the following month.
