A California man who tried to blame his twin brother for the rapes of a 9-year-old girl and a jogger was sentenced to 140 years to life this week in attacks that happened decades ago, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office said.

Genealogy technology led investigators to Kevin Konther, the man who was convicted and sentenced, and his twin brother in 2019 in connection with the sexual assaults in 1995 and 1998, the district attorney’s office said in a statement.

“Identical twins share the same DNA, but conversations covertly recorded between the two brothers following their arrests revealed multiple incriminating statements made by Kevin Konther, including admissions that he carried out the crimes,” the office said in February when he was convicted.
