Man wanted in Ky. arrested in NC
MADISONVILLE, Ky. — Police said a man wanted in western Kentucky for allegedly raping a 13-year-old was arrested in North Carolina after his girlfriend turned him in.
Kristopher K. Hill, 30, of Beulaville, N.C., was charged earlier this month after police said the woman looked him up and found him on Madisonville’s most wanted list.
Madisonville Police Det. Leighann Leavell told The Messenger the woman called the Duplin County, N.C., Sheriff’s Office to “come get him.”
Sheriff’s deputies picked up Hill on March 16 and he was extradited Monday to Hopkins County, Ky.
Hill was wanted on two counts of first-degree rape in Hopkins County. The juvenile victim of the alleged rapes came forward in September, Leavell said.
She reported the two incidents happened between March 2010 and March 2011 when Hill lived in Madisonvile, Leavell said.
Hill was indicted on two counts of rape by the Hopkins Circuit Court on Jan. 23, but had left town by the time a grand jury acted.
Leavell said normally when someone turns in a significant other, it is done out of anger, but Hill’s girlfriend had another motive.
“She had two children in her home, she did not want him around them,” Leavell said.
Hill was being held on $15,000 bond in the Hopkins County Jail. His arraignment is scheduled for April 3.
Jail records did not list an attorney for Hill on Thursday.
