The “pillowcase rapist” was charged Monday with the crimes that prompted his beating by a group of vigilantes as well as an earlier burglary in which he allegedly fondled a woman before being scared away.
If convicted of robbery, criminal deviate conduct and two counts each of burglary and confinement, the 48-year-old faces up to 60 years in prison.
Muldrew is accused of breaking into the homes of two women and covering their faces with a pillowcase or sheet. He is charged with fondling the woman in the first break-in, and stealing the other’s purse.
The charges come less than one year after California prison officials reluctantly released Muldrew after he served 16 years for four rapes and 13 sex, burglary and robbery offenses.
