CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) - A man who fought against providing another DNA sample has been charged with sexually assaulting an Iowa woman in 2008.

Thirty-one-year-old Eric Hill was arrested Tuesday. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on Hill’s behalf.

Authorities say DNA information on Hill was entered in July 2013 into a database after an unrelated incident in Illinois, and that sample turned him into a suspect in the Aug. 15, 2008, attack reported by a woman in Charles City.

Mason City station KIMT reports (https://bit.ly/1UNmU8K ) that Hill went to court in an effort to resist providing another DNA sample for confirmation, but a judge eventually ordered him to comply. Authorities say the DNA matched evidence obtained from the woman’s sex assault kit.
