Life in prison for sex assaults on elderly Va. women

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — A man will spend the rest of his life in prison for sexually assaulting two elderly Virginia Beach women.

A judge on Tuesday sentenced 22-year-old Kindale Keith Moore to two life terms plus 20 years for attacks on the women, aged 88 and 77, in their homes in 2008 and 2010.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that Moore already was serving a 60-year sentence for a similar attack in Portsmouth.

Circuit Court Judge Edward W. Hanson Jr. said the life terms were the only appropriate sentence to impose.

Both women were widows who had lived in their homes for at least 50 years. One has since died, while the other lives in fear, according to testimony.

Moore apologized to the families of both women in court.
