PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - A man suspected of being a serial rapist known as the "Ether Man" faces up to 84 years in prison for trying to blow up the home of a Colorado police officer.
Forty-nine-year-old Robert Bruce was convicted in the attempted murder case Thursday in Pueblo. He'll be sentenced Sept. 23.
Prosecutors say Bruce tried to kill officer Nathan Pruce to keep him from testifying against him in a peeping Tom case. They argued Bruce was trying to keep authorities from linking him to rape cases in New Mexico and Texas using DNA evidence.
The Pueblo Chieftain (http://bit.ly/nUCkvL) reports that Pueblo prosecutors say they're prepared to go forward with a rape case against Bruce in October. They're also working with authorities in Texas and New Mexico on cases there.
