DALLAS (AP) - A North Texas jury has sentenced a man to life in prison over an aggravated sexual assault committed 23 years ago.

Robert Warterfield was sentenced Thursday, a day after his conviction in the sexual assault of a 7-year-old girl in 1989. He’s also charged in the assault of a 9-year-old girl that year.

Warterfield was implicated in the crimes after DNA tests led to the exoneration of another man in a separate sexual assault case. Stephen Brodie had served 10 years in prison before his release in 2010.

Investigators tested DNA from other cases related to the so-called “North Dallas Rapist” and linked Warterfield to two of them.
