KC man, friend accused of raping children

KANSAS CITY — A Kansas City man is accused of repeatedly raping two female relatives aged 10 and 16, and forcing them to have sex with his best friend while he watched.

The 33-year-old man is charged with 14 counts of rape and five other sex-related charges. The man's friend, 26-year-old Kenneth Donnell Jr., faces 12 counts of rape. The men were jailed Wednesday in $250,000 bond each.

The Associated Press is withholding the name of the 33-year-old to protect the girls' identity.

Court documents give lurid details of the case, including that the man put the 10-year-old on birth control and that the same girl acquired two sexually transmitted diseases. The girl told police that the man had sex with two other relatives, aged 12 and 13, and two 14-year-old friends.

Police said Donnell told them the other suspect set him up with about 30 girls.
