To understand the dialog and narrative it is necessary to prefix here that victim lived with her boyfriend. They were both asleep in bed when:
Victims were awakened by a flashlight beam playing over their faces. A voice now spoke through clenched teeth, in an angry whisper. “Don’t look over this way or I’ll kill you. Roll over on your stomachs. Do you know what a forty-five magnum is? I’ll blow your brains all over the room with it if you don’t do what I tell you.”
As they complied and rolled over, assailant said: “All I want is your money and nobody will get hurt.” Then he ordered the victim: “Tie up your husband.”
Assailant directed her eyes to the pair of black shoelaces which had already been placed on the bed while they had been a asleep. Victim tied boyfriend and then returned to a prone position on assailant’s orders and then was tied up by the assailant. He then leaned over her and retied her boyfriend tightly. “Don’t move or I’ll kill you.”
Assailant left room for about 15 minutes. He then returned and grabbed the victim. “Come with me,” he snarled through clenched teeth. “I can’t find your purse. If you move one inch I’ll cut your throat.”
Victim and assailant returned in a short time. Assailant then retied boyfriend’s wrists and then tied his ankles with wire cord.
Assailant took the victim out again, warning the boyfriend: “Don’t move or I’ll kill her.”
Assailant returned with victim. Assailant placed dishes on boyfriend’s back. “If I hear the dishes, I’ll kill her first.” Then he spoke to victim: “Do what I say or I’ll kill him.”
Boyfriend was then left alone.
Victim was taken into the family room. Assailant placed her on the floor and put his penis in her tied hands. He ordered her to “Play with it!” He threatened her by putting the gun to her
head and cocking it. He also put a knife to her throat. He threatened her until she called his penis a slang term that he wanted to hear. She did not see his gloves, but she could feel them as he raped her. Also, she felt the gun in his jacket pocket as he raped her.
Due to the discomfort in his numb fingers, victim’s boyfriend tried to work the bindings loose to relieve some of the pain. The plates fell. Assailant was soon back in the room, but he had returned quietly. He had not rushed in. Boyfriend knew he was there when the barrel of a gun touched his head and he heard it cocked. “You do that again and I’ll kill you,” assailant snarled through his clenched teeth. Assailant then replaced the dishes.
In between threats and raping, assailant would go into the kitchen and rummage. He also went and took victim’s license from her purse and took portrait pictures out and set them about.
Close to 20 minutes passed and the boyfriend accidentally knocked the plates off his back again. Assailant was quickly back by his side. He threw the sheets over his head and warned him angrily: “Don’t move or I’ll kill her.”
Soon the house was silent. After a while, victim called to her boyfriend. She was able to hobble back and with a knife cut his bindings. They called the sheriffs from the neighbors.
Sheriffs discovered the master bedroom phone and the kitchen phone lines had been cut. Entrance to the house had apparently been made through a sliding glass back patio door.
Victim admitted frankly that they kept a half gram of coke in the refrigerator. They also had a pill bottle with two beans in it and a little marijuana. The items in question were missing.
Victim also recalled that while washing her car one day, wearing shorts and a bikini top, her attention had been drawn to a passing car, a sedan, because the driver slowed to look at her. She thought nothing of it until after the incident.
Victim never saw assailant’s head clearly, but believed he had a mask. However, victim did see a green khaki colored nylon jacket, dark green pants whose hems were tucked into army lace-up boots. She did not see the gloves, but knew he wore them.
