CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A tortuous kidnapping and rape of a Pine
Bluffs woman last spring has a suspect. Twenty-nine-year-old Refugio R. Cerenil faces more than 20 years in prison for allegedly breaking into a woman's home on April 24 and strangling her until she went unconscious.
Then, prosecutors say, Cerenil took the woman to his home in Pine Bluffs and placed her a brown Ford van, where he raped the woman. Cerenil has been charged with aggravated assault and battery, kidnapping and first-degree sexual assault, according to court documents. Laramie County District Attorney Scott Homar said the case is still under investigation. Arraignment has not been set.
