Man gets 30 years in prison for chloroform attack, rape
ST. CHARLES (AP) - A Webster Groves man accused of using chloroform to knock out his ex-girlfriend, tie her up and sexually assault her was sentenced to 30 years in prison Friday.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported 36-year-old Italo Rodolfo Pacheco Teran was convicted of charges that included false imprisonment, rape and child abuse.
According to authorities, Teran went into his ex-girlfriend's home in September while the 43-year-old woman and her two children were asleep. Police said the woman convinced Teran to free her so she could drink a glass of water, and she found her 9-year-old daughter incoherent in the bathroom and bound with duct tape. Her 1-year-old son, who is Teran's biological child, was asleep in his crib.
The victim called 911 and fled with her daughter.
