Ohio death row inmate convicted of 1994 rape

CLEVELAND (AP) — A man on Ohio's death row for the killing of a Cleveland police officer has been found guilty in a 1994 rape.

Jurors in Cleveland convicted Quisi (KWEE'-zee) Bryan of rape and kidnapping Thursday following a three-day trial.

A message seeking comment was left for Bryan's public defender.

Bryan was indicted last summer after investigators found that his DNA matched a rape kit from a victim 20 years ago. Bryan already had been convicted in four other rape cases.

The victim in this latest rape case testified at the trial against Bryan.

He was sentenced to death in the 2000 killing of Cleveland police officer Wayne Leon. Bryan shot the officer in the face during a traffic stop.
