DNA links inmate to 1986 rape of deaf woman

Jackson County prosecutors charged Alphonso Henderson, 50, with robbery, forcible sodomy and three counts of rape. He is in a Virginia federal penitentiary for being a felon in possession of a firearm. His previous record includes convictions for assault, false imprisonment, sodomy and burglary. He was set to be released in about 12 years, but police said the new charges could keep him behind bars much longer.
