Suspicions of a girlfriend here in Eastern Carolina has landed a "most wanted" man behind bars in Kentucky.
Madisonville, Kentucky Police Det. Leighann Leavell says curiosity lead the woman to look up 30-year-old Kristopher Hill of Beulaville, earlier this month. Leavell tells WITN News after recognizing her boyfriend on Madisonville's most wanted list, she called the Duplin County Sheriff's Office to "come get him."
Sheriff's deputies picked up Hill on March 16 and he was extradited Monday to Hopkins County.
Hill was wanted on two counts of first-degree rape in Hopkins County. The 13-year-old victim of the alleged rapes came forward in September, Leavell said. She reported the two incidents happened between March 2010 and March 2011 when Hill lived in Madisonville, Leavell said.
Hill was indicted on two counts of rape by the Hopkins Circuit Court on Jan. 23, but had left town by the time a grand jury acted.
Leavell said normally when someone turns in a significant other, it is done out of anger, but Hill's girlfriend had another motive. "She had two children in her home, she did not want him around them," Leavell said.
Hill was being held on $15,000 bond in the Hopkins County Jail. His arraignment is scheduled for April 3.
