Texarkana Gazette - - METRO/STATE -

BLYTHEVILLE, Ark.—An 18-year-old Mis­souri man has been sen­tenced to 20 years in prison af­ter he pleaded guilty to rap­ing two young girls in Arkansas.

The Arkansas Demo­crat-Gazette re­ports that Carlo Love of Ken­nett, Mo., was sen­tenced Mon­day; his prison term will be fol­lowed by a 10-year sus­pended sen­tence.

Pros­e­cu­tors say the vic­tims, ages 8 and 11, were at their grand­fa­ther’s house last Novem­ber in Mis­sis­sippi County, in north­east Arkansas, when Love asked if they wanted to “play a game.” He then locked him­self in a room with the girls. The chil­dren were later taken to a hospi­tal, where DNA ev­i­dence was re­cov­ered.

Love was ar­rested two weeks later.
