College Roommates Accused Of Rape

Sat., Oct. 21, 1995

Two Texas Christian University roommates were arrested after a woman told police she was raped by one as the other slept nearby, then raped by the other 12 days later in retaliation for reporting the first attack.

Sophomores James E. Kiehle and Judd Payne, both 19, were free on bond and had not been formally charged by Friday.

The 20-year-old woman told police Payne attacked her Oct. 4 while Kiehle slept in their room at the all-male Clark Hall. She said she returned to the dormitory Monday and Kiehle grabbed her and dragged her into the room, where he sexually assaulted her without Payne present.

The school did not investigate after the woman reported the first attack because she refused to name her attacker.
