Kansas deputy testifies about alleged sexual assault
OLATHE, Kan. — A Kansas sheriff's deputy says two Kansas City-area men who are charged with kidnapping and raping her referred to each other by name during the attack.
The Johnson County deputy, 22, testified Thursday in the preliminary hearing for William Luth, 25, of Blue Springs, Missouri, and Brady Newman-Caddell, 21, of Independence, Missouri. Each man is charged with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated sodomy and two counts of rape.
The Kansas City Star reports that the deputy said one of the men asked her for directions last October as she walked to work at the detention center in Olathe, Kansas. She says the man punched her and forced her into the car, where the two men sexually assaulted her before releasing her.
She testified they called each other "Will" and "Brady" during the assault.
