Attys: Man accused in family deaths raped child

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma prosecutors say an ex-convict
accused of strangling his ex-girlfriend and her four children also raped one of her daughters at the time of the killings.

Canadian County prosecutors allege in documents filed Tuesday that 26-year-old Joshua Durcho raped his ex-girlfriend's 7-year-old daughter. Prosecutors say they plan to seek the death penalty against him.

The judge in the case has entered a not guilty plea on Durcho's behalf to five counts of first-degree murder.

The bodies of 25-year-old Summer Garas and her children - three girls and a boy, ranging in age from 3 to 7 - were found in their apartment on Jan. 12 in El Reno, a town about 25 miles west of downtown Oklahoma City.

Durcho was arrested Jan. 13 in Hamilton County, Texas, after an
accident.
