S.C. man sentenced in cold case Va. rape

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) ó A South Carolina man convicted of a 2001 rape in Virginia has been sentenced to 33 years in prison.


Investigators used a new forensic tool, familial DNA, to solve the case.


A Williamsburg jury convicted 37-year-old Tyrone Lamont Holloway of Marion, in December 2013 of raping a young Hungarian woman who had been working at Busch Gardens.


The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Holloway was sentenced last week in Williamsburg Circuit Court.


The crime remained unsolved until 2012. Thatís when a familial DNA search by the Virginia Department of Forensic Science suggested the assailant was the brother, father or son of a man whose DNA profile was in the stateís offender databank.


The search led police to Holloway.
