MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WKRC) - On the morning of Nov. 17, nurses at the Close to Home assisted living facility in Middletown heard what sounded like screaming coming from a resident's room.

When they entered the room, they found 71-year-old Gary Earls naked on top of the woman who lives in that room.

She was also naked.

The nurses took Earls back to his room and called the police.

After investigators administered a rape kit, they found enough evidence to arrest Earls.

He's now in the Butler County Jail, awaiting his next court appearance.

He's being held on a $100,000 bond.
