TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Clarks Hill man faces decades behind bars for a home invasion and rape that happened in September.
After deliberating for more than three hours, a jury found Blake Green guilty of five felony charges Tuesday, including residential entry, strangulation and rape with a deadly weapon.
The victim said she was woken up around 2 a.m. on Sept. 12 to a man pointing a gun a her. He assaulted her repeatedly, and threatened to hurt her family if she told anyone.
That same day, she told police she believed it was Blake Green, who she recognized from around town. DNA evidence also returned a match to Green.
His sentencing is set for June 21, when he faces 20 to 58 years in prison.
