BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - State police say a western Kentucky man has been charged with raping a 15-year-old Florida girl. Police say she was lured to Kentucky after they allegedly chatted on the Internet, state police said.
Police announced today that 34-year-old Marion Yarbrough, of Russellville, about 30 miles southwest of Bowling Green, has been
charged with seven counts of rape and unlawful transaction with a minor.
According to police, the girl says Yarbrough told her he was 21
years old and furnished her with a bus ticket from Miami to Nashville. Police say he picked her up there and took her to Bowling Green, where he allegedly raped her.
The girl was in state custody today and officials were arranging to send her home to Miami.
