The 20-year-old woman told police that the construction worker repeatedly raped her at knife-point after getting drunk last Wednesday, 14th March. The suspect then confessed to raping his daughter, saying he had not been with a woman for two years, according to a report on SigmaLive.com.

An autopsy will be held on March 19th.
