CLEVELAND (AP) — A grand jury in Cleveland reviewing long-untested DNA rape kit evidence has indicted two men just one day before the 20-year statute of limitations expired.

The latest indictments Thursday grew out of an initiative pushed by the state of Ohio to check rape kits in storage for years.

According to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (bit.ly/16EgIHc), one indictment charged a man with three counts of rape in a June 28, 1993, attack. In a separate case, a man was charged with two rape counts in a home invasion the same day.

The grand jury earlier indicted suspects whose DNA has been catalogued but whose names remain undetermined. The charges also came just before the statute of limitations expired.

The indictments will allow prosecution if the DNA leads to identification of suspects.
