JAY – A convicted felon is now facing rape charges.

Brian Lee Kingfisher, 28, has been charged with first-degree rape after he reportedly came into a woman’s home and sexually assaulted her on Jan. 1, 2007.

According to the affidavit for arrest, the victim claimed Kingfisher came through her door saying he wanted to talk to her.

After she told him to leave, she said he threatened her and raped her.

Kingfisher was picked up in Adair County for an outstanding warrant in another case. He was transported to the Delaware County Jail where he remains incarcerated on a $300,000 bond.

Kingfisher was released from prison in 2004 after being convicted on felony charges of assault on a police officer and falsely impersonating another to create liability.

He appeared in district court Nov. 6 where a preliminary hearing was set for Dec. 10 at 9 a.m.
