SYCAMORE, Ill. – A trial is underway for a man from Seattle, accused of sexually assaulting an Illinois teenager 50 years ago.
Prosecutors say Jack McCullough raped the teenage girl in the early 1960s.
Attorneys had planned to start interviewing potential jurors Monday, but McCullough decided he wanted a judge to decide the case instead.
Both sides say there's no physical evidence in the decades-old alleged rape. Prosecutors say the accuser is expected to testify.
McCullough, 72, also faces kidnapping and murder charges in the 1957 death of 7-year-old Maria Ridulph, also of Sycamore. Those charges aren't part of the current trial.
