Authorities Say 11-Year-Old Raped by Stepfather

Investigators say an 11-year-old Wayne County girl was tied up and raped by her stepfather Wednesday morning. Lawmen say the rape happened on Rhodes Drive in Dudley about 6:15. The Wayne County Sheriff's Department says 36-year-old Keith John Lewis waited until his wife went to work, then bound the girl's hands with duck tape and raped her. A little while later, authorities say the stepfather was found lying in a nearby cemetery and was unresponsive. The sheriff's department says charges of kidnapping and statutory rape will be served when he is released from the hospital.
