Russell County man on trial for rape, incest

Jurors are currently deliberating in the case of Vincent Bernard Jones, who is accused of raping a relative.

Jones, 44, is charged with first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, first-degree sexual abuse and incest, said Russell County District Attorney Kenneth Davis. Jones allegedly committed the acts several times over the 2007 summer.

Jones has prior convictions of rape and forgery, Davis said. If convicted, he will be sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole.
