KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City man was sentenced to 14 years in prison for the rapes of two young women in 1992.

Forty-nine-year-old Keith Harris was sentenced Monday for raping the 18- and 19-year-old women. Harris was arrested in December 2012 in Platte County, after his DNA profile matched evidence from the 1992 case.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1rYst4w ) the two victims told police they met Harris at a bar in Kansas City, Kan., and agreed to ride with him in his semi-trailer truck. They said he stopped in Kansas City and raped them while threatening them with a knife.

Harris was sentenced to seven years each on two counts of rape. The sentence will run consecutively.
