Mother Of Killed Baby Faces More Rape Charges
January 10, 2012, 9:52 AM
RAPID CITY, SD -
A Rapid City woman whose daughter was killed in December faces additional rape charges for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old boy - and officials say one encounter might have occurred the same day her daughter was fatally injured.
Twenty-eight-year-old April Solles was arrested December 30 in the complicated case. She initially was charged with three counts of fourth-degree rape.
A Pennington County grand jury indicted Solles last week, however, and added two counts of sexual contact and three counts of statutory rape.
One of the encounters was allegedly December 13 or December 14. Solles' daughter died in a Sioux Falls hospital December 18 from an acute blunt-force head injury sustained four days earlier.
A 14-year-old boy faces charges in juvenile court for the death.
