43 year-old Kenneth Edward Whatley has been returned to Missoula from Arizona to face a sexual intercourse without consent charge from 2003.

Court records indicate that in December 2003, a woman reported to authorities that an unidentified man had broken into her North Grove Avenue home in Missoula and forced her to have sex with him.After the rape, the suspect tied up the victim with a piece of rope.

Deputies investigating the scene discovered that the suspect had left behind a baseball cap. In December, 2010 Detective Rich Maricelli with the Missoula County Sheriff’s Department received notification from the State Crime Lab that the DNA profile matched that of a convicted offender from Arizona, Kenneth Whatley.
