COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Bond has been set at $1 million for a 23-year-old central Ohio man accused in the rape of an 81-year-old woman last year.

Police say Shawn Malone Jr. of Columbus was charged Monday after police say physical evidence linked him to the January 2014 rape. Bond was set during a court appearance Tuesday.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1N5rZt9 ) reports that the victim told police a man broke into her home through a basement window and shoved her to the floor in the living room. She said he then raped her at knifepoint.

Malone was arrested on March 18 in an unrelated burglary and then linked to the rape. Court records did not include attorney information.
