OXFORD, Ohio (WXIX) - DNA and forensic genealogy have led to a suspect’s arrest in connection with a 2006 rape investigation of a Miami University student.

Lloyd Ailes, 58, was arrested Thursday in Connersville, Indiana, according to Butler County Prosecutor Mike Gmoser.

Ailes, who is from Indiana, was linked to the January 2006 rape when case DNA was traced back to his parents, Gmoser said. The alleged rape happened in a home on North Campus Avenue.

He faces two counts of rape and four counts of aggravated burglary, court records show.

The 58-year-old appeared in court Friday, and the judge set his bond at $775,000, the prosecutor confirmed to FOX19 NOW.
