Arizona Man Charged With 2003 Rape in Missoula

Kenneth Edward Whatley Mug ShotMISSOULA, Mont. (AP) – A 46-year-old Arizona man has been returned to Montana to face charges that he raped a woman in Missoula in late 2003.

Kenneth Edward Whatley is charged with sexual intercourse without consent. He was being held in the Missoula County jail with bail set at $250,000 and was to appear in Justice Court on Monday afternoon.

According to jail records, Whatley was returned to Montana on Sunday night.

Court records say Whatley is suspected of breaking into a house on Dec. 5, 2003 and raping a woman. The State Crime Lab notified a Missoula County sheriff’s captain in 2010 that DNA from a baseball cap left at the woman’s house matched Whatley, who was a convicted offender in Arizona.

It was not immediately clear how the case progressed from 2010 until Whatley’s arrest.
