A Kansas City teenager has pleaded guilty to raping a woman, 84, during a break-in at the home she shared with her husband, 93.
The Jackson County prosecutor's office says Tony Putman, 19, will be sentenced May 15 after pleading guilty Friday to forcible rape, robbery and two counts of kidnapping.
The attack happened last July. The woman told police she came home from running errands, heard her husband moaning and confronted an intruder who demanded money.
The woman gave the intruder $400 in cash. He then raped the woman, took some jewelry and drove away in the couple's vehicle.
Putman was arrested about 30 minutes later. Police said he claimed he had found the car on a street and that his mother had given him the jewelry to pawn.
