Man Convicted In 2 Md. Home Invasions

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — A man faces a possible life sentence after being convicted of two home invasions, including one in which a woman was sexually assaulted.

A Montgomery County jury convicted Kevin Ray, 34, late Thursday of 14 counts, including burglary, first-degree sex offense, first-degree assault, false imprisonment and handgun offenses.

Authorities say Ray invaded two homes on back-to-back days in January 2011. The first was in Silver Spring, and the second was in Bethesda. In the second incident, authorities say Ray forced the female victim to perform a sex act.

He was arrested in North Carolina after police obtained a photo of him using a victim’s credit card.

State’s Attorney John McCarthy says prosecutors anticipate Ray receiving a long sentence. He will be sentenced on June 20.
