St. Joseph County judge sentences rapist to 90 years in prison

ST . JOSEPH CO., Ind. -- We have an update on a story we first brought you in July.

A man who pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and two counts of criminal deviate conduct will likely spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Judge Roland Chamblee sentenced 35-year-old Mwamba Ruffin to 90 years in prison -- 45 years for each victim.

This sentence comes six years after Ruffin was accused of raping and robbing two people in St. Joseph County., just two hours apart.

The Prosecutor's Office said police were able to crack the double rape case using DNA evidence.
