• Schuette, Getting Charge Tennessee Man in Kalamazoo Rape Cold Case

Attorney General Bill Schuette and Kalamazoo Prosecutor Jeff Getting announced multiple felony charges against Calvin Ray Kelly, 57, a Tennessee man who allegedly repeatedly raped a Kalamazoo woman at knifepoint on April 8, 2008. Schuette's Attorney General Cold Case Sexual Assault Project team has linked Kelly to the incident. Schuette has requested that Kelly be sentenced as a Habitual Offender under the Violent Offender Fourth Offense (VO-4) habitual offender law.

"Solving cold cases requires a combination of dedication, resources, and cooperation across jurisdictions," said Schuette.  "Our aggressive, victim-centered, offender-focused approach has brought us one step closer to securing justice for survivors of sexual assault and their loved ones."
