Rape Charges Filed Against Maplewood Man

The charges stem from an incident reported on June 7.

A Maplewood man is set to appear before a Grand Jury after being charged with second degree rape and sodomy of a 14-year-old girl on June 7.

Edward Runnels, 44 of 3109 Laclede Station Road, is being held on a $50,000 bond. Police arrested Runnels on the same day of the alleged crime.

The Grand Jury, composed of 12 citizens, will determine if probable cause exists for the crime, and if the suspect was the one who committed it, notes the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney website. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for July 25.
