Man, 50, claims he only had sex with his unconscious neighbor to try to keep her warm.
A suspected Utah rapist claims he only had sex with his unconscious neighbor to try to keep her warm.
Rodger William Kelly allegedly told cops he was “trying to save her life” as he inserted his penis into the knocked-out 29-year-old.
The 50-year-old said he found the woman passed out May 19 on her porch on returning to his St. George home.
He reportedly carried her into his apartment, laid her on his bed, hugged her and then had sex with her to “warm her up.”
Paramedics were called to find Kelly giving his alleged victim CPR.
On waking up, she suspected she’d been raped and called cops.
They found bruises on her pelvis and upper thighs.
But a rape kit was reportedly inconclusive because her genital area had been cleaned up as she was passed out, The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Court documents stated: “He said he did place it [his penis]inside of her to try and get her temperature up.”
Kelly was arrested Monday and charged with one count of first-degree felony rape.
