Maryland Man Who May be Dead Convicted of Rape in Delaware

Posted: Jan 25, 2018 8:59 AM Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A Maryland man who may be dead has been convicted of rape in Delaware.

WBOC media partner the Delaware State News reports a jury on Wednesday found 45-year-old William L. Reynolds, of Millington, Md., guilty on seven rape-related counts, including first-degree rape with injury, in connection with a November 2016 incident.

Reynolds failed to show in court Wednesday, and Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Clark ordered a writ for his arrest. After the verdict was issued, Clark referenced a "credible" report that the defendant had died in Maryland. He ordered Reynolds' bail revoked.

Deputy Attorney General Kathleen Dickerson told Clark an investigator was trying to confirm Reynolds' status. A sentencing date has not yet been set.

Both Dickerson and defense attorney Jaime L. Walker had agreed that jury deliberations should continue despite Reynolds' absence.
