Man gets life sentence for sex assault against patient, 74

A jury in Texas has convicted a health care worker of sexually assaulting a nursing home patient who had dementia

Prosecutors accused Nyakeo of raping the then-74-year-old woman in January 2018, and said he was linked to the attack through DNA. The Star-Telegram reports that Nyakeo testified that somebody planted his DNA from a used condom in the body of the victim.

The woman died last year from Alzheimer's disease at age 75.
