A Grandview Plaza man originally charged with attempted murder has entered a plea to rape and aggravated battery charges. Luis Caicedo-Mosquera entered the plea the end of last week in Geary County District Court.
Caicedo-Mosquera was arrested in August of 2016 after Junction City Police and emergency medical personnel were dispatched to the Budget Host Motel at 820 South Washington Street in Junction City. At that time authorities found Karlie Jones, 19, of Wichita who received a single stab wound to the chest. Caicedo-Mosquera was identified as the suspect and later located. Investigators at the time indicated the victim and suspect had been communicating via Internet in reference to adult escort activities.
Caicedo-Mosquera entered a not guilty plea to attempted first degree murder and aggravated battery charges in June of this year–but ended up entering a plea Friday to the rape and aggravated battery counts. Geary County court officials tell KMAN the rape plea was in connection with a separate case in July of 2016
