TX man guilty of kidnapping, chaining, raping neighbor

WEATHERFORD, Texas (AP) - A Texas man has been found guilty of kidnapping his former neighbor and raping her on a deer-skinning device and a bed where she was chained nightly for almost two weeks.

Jurors deliberated 50 minutes before reaching a verdict in Jeffrey Allan Maxwell's case. The 59-year-old was charged with aggravated kidnapping and two counts of aggravated sexual assault.

Maxwell faces up to life in prison. Jurors will hear more evidence during the trial's punishment phase.

The woman testified last week that Maxwell abducted her March 1 from her rural home. Then he drove 100 miles away to his Corsicana house, 50 miles south of Dallas.

She was rescued 12 days later when authorities went to question Maxwell about her disappearance.
