CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Westwood man currently serving time for murdering his girlfriend in 2011 has just been indicted on a 14-year-old rape case.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters announced the indictment on Monday.

Alfonso Williams is charged with raping a 77-year-old woman in her Westwood home in May 1998.

Williams is charged with two counts of rape, one count of aggravated burglary and one count of kidnapping.

According to reports, he gained entry to the victim's apartment by removing a window air conditioner.  After stealing $385.00 dollars, court documents allege Williams twice raped the 77-year-old woman and fled the scene.

The victim passed away of natural causes in 1999.

If convicted of all charges, Williams faces the possibility of 40 years in prison.

He is currently serving a 14-year sentence after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter and felonious assault in the 2011 death of 62-year-old Diana Hutsell.

Hutsell was found dead at the Westwood home she shared with Williams.

DNA evidence taken at the scene of Hutsell's murder matched samples found on the 77-year-old woman's nightgown in 1998.

Prosecutor Deters commented, "It is impossible to overstate the value of DNA evidence in these cases.  Our victim died 13 years ago.  We can now seek justice for her and deliver it to the monster who brutally raped this 77-year-old woman.  Good riddance to him."
