Man convicted of raping child a decade ago

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A New Orleans jury has convicted a man of raping a child more than a decade ago.
Fifty-eight-year-old Samuel Williams faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison following his conviction Thursday for raping an 11-year-old girl several times in 1999 and 2000.
The Orleans Parish District Attorney's office says Williams impregnated the girl - and DNA from the fetus matched him.
Williams was tried in 2006, but the jury couldn't reach a verdict. Prosecutors said the city's police department thought it had lost the fetus when Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005, but found it last year.
