County man accused of brutal rape


Police say a Carter County man arrested Thursday afternoon brutally beat, raped and held a woman prisoner for two days.

According to a Carter County Sheriff’s Department arrest report, Leonard Rosco Winters,  66, was charged with false imprisonment and aggravated rape in connection with incident, which reportedly occurred Dec. 20.

An affidavit filed yesterday in Carter County General Sessions Court by Investigator Larry Vaughn claims Winters choked his victim until she thought she was going to die, then dragged her into his residence and raped her on a bed.

Vaughn writes that Winters then told her to sit on a couch and not use the telephone or tell anyone about the incident.
