PITTSBURGH (AP) - A man linked to the 2002 rape of a Pittsburgh college student using DNA taken from him after an unrelated arrest has been sentenced to 75 to 150 years in prison.

Allegheny County Judge David Cashman told 47-year-old Ralph Skundrich on Thursday that, “Your days of torturing women are over.”

Skundrich’s criminal record dates to 1987 and he still faces charges that he raped a woman in Cranberry, Butler County, seven weeks before the Pittsburgh attack, as well as a sexual battery case in Florida.

Skundrich is also facing trial on burglary and drug charges from two separate incidents dating as far back as 2003 in neighboring Westmoreland County.

Skundrich was charged in the July 25, 2002 Pittsburgh attack after police matched his DNA to that scene in March 2010.
