LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A convicted rapist has become the first person indicted in the Kentucky effort to test thousands of old rape kits.

Cornelius Miller, age 58, is accused of raping a woman in July 2012. Louisville Metro Police were notified in March about a lab-tested kit linking him to the case.

Miller was already in custody awaiting trial in an unrelated case.

Court records show Miller was released on parole in 1981 and 2009 after rape convictions. Miller is set to be arraigned on the new rape charge next Monday.
