Conn. to extradite rape suspect

Faces trial in Va., allegedly tied to total of 17 cases

NEW HAVEN - Connecticut prosecutors will try to send a man suspected in rape cases along the East Coast to face trial first in Virginia, where a prosecutor asked that he be extradited to answer for what the official called heinous crimes.

Aaron Thomas was arrested in March in New Haven, his hometown, and authorities say DNA confirmed that he is responsible for rapes and other attacks on 17 women from Virginia to Connecticut over the span of a decade.
