CLEVELAND (AP) - Authorities say two Ohio men serving long prison terms for multiple sexual assaults have been indicted for additional rapes after DNA evidence tested by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office linked them to other attacks.

Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County prosecutors said Thursday that 48-year-old Nathan Ford has been charged in the rapes of four women - one in 1995, one in 1998 and two in 2000. He was convicted in 2006 for raping eight women and is serving 113 years.

Forty-eight-year-old Derrick Lartdale is charged in three rapes that occurred in 1995 and 1996. He was sentenced to 62 years in prison in 1998 after being convicted of two counts of rape and one count of attempted rape.

Prosecutors say rape-kit testing and investigations in Cuyahoga County have led to 357 indictments.
