An Ashtabula County Ohio man waiting to be tried for the murder of a woman could spend 35 years in jail for the rape and kidnapping of another woman.

Kyle Starkey is receiving that sentence in Ashtabula County Court. The victim came forward after Starkey was accused in the beating death of 36-year-old Mandy Gottschalk.

Gottschalk’s body was found in a shallow grave in the woods of Ashtabula County in August of 2015.

Starkey still faces charges for Gottschalk’s death and for getting a friend to help bury her body.
