MOBILE, Alabama -- More than 18 years after a woman was kidnapped, raped and robbed in west Mobile, police say a man has been connected to the crime and was arrested this week in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. 

The arrest came after a Mobile police lieutenant began looking at the case again about 11 months ago, Mobile police spokesman Officer Christopher Levy said. 

Willie Kevin Williams, 42, remained in the Okaloosa County, Fla., jail in Crestview tonight, awaiting extradition to Mobile to face charges of first-degree rape, first-degree robbery and second-degree kidnapping, Sgt. Tom Matz of the Fort Walton Beach police said. 

Matz said Williams was captured after a brief foot chase in downtown Fort Walton Beach late Tuesday evening. 

According to Matz, Williams had been living in Navarre, about 15 miles west of Fort Walton Beach in Santa Rosa County. 

Williams is accused in connection with an incident that took place in February 1993 in west Mobile, Levy said. 

According to Levy, a woman was raped, robbed and kidnapped after her car broke down. Levy said the victim submitted physical evidence for a rape kit, and fingerprints were taken from the car, but at the time police were unable to match the evidence to anyone. 

It was in August 2010 that Lt. Joseph Rose of the police identification division took a new look at the file, according to Levy. He said Rose regularly pulls old cases in hopes of matching evidence and new technology to unsolved cases.

Deputies took a Geneva teenager into custody on Tuesday after a judge sentenced him for sending nude pictures of himself to a 12-year-old Ashford girl.

Houston County Circuit Court Judge Brad Mendheimgave 19-year-old Branden Utley a three-year prison term after hearing extensive testimony and arguments from lawyers. Utley pleaded guilty earlier this year to three felony charges, including two counts of transmitting obscene material and enticing a child for immoral purposes.

Houston County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Utley in October 2010. Court records indicate Utley pleaded guilty to using a computer to send at least two nude pictures of himself to the girl. Records also indicate he was charged with enticing the same girl to Westgate Park for the purpose of sex.

5:45 p.m. – Testimony ended for the day with William White, attorney for Sen. Harri Anne Smith, questioning Ronnie Gilley about statements he made to the FBI about when he first met Smith.

According to an FBI recap of one of Gilley’s interviews, Gilley told the FBI he first met Smith during a Country Crossing rally at the Dothan Convention Center in 2008, about the same time Smith was preparing to have her Houston County bingo bill withdrawn from the Alabama Legislature. Gilley testified in court he first met Smith at a campaign fundraiser in Enterprise shortly after she had asked the bill to be withdrawn. Gilley said he is not good at remembering dates. The two dates, however, are not far apart.

“I like it so far,” Burney said. “It’s different because I’m used to the slots up there at VictoryLand where I’m from. I think it’s good for Dothan. I hope it brings more jobs, and things to do for the area.”

The Dothan Police Department responded to the 2500 block of Scott Road just before three a.m. this morning for a call which began as a suspicious circumstance and ended with one person in custody for attempted murder.

Police say a preliminary investigation revealed between

2:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. twenty-nine year old Kelly Laster took her 3 year old son and placed him in storm drain approximately 150 yards from her residence on Scott Road where she lives with her parents.
