Judge sets bail for accused rapist

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) --Bail was set at $2 million Friday for a Columbus man accused of raping a 13-year old girl near her school bus stop.

Antonio J. Fillmore, 36, appeared before a judge to face two counts of rape.

Columbus police say Fillmore approached the girl at the bus stop near near Myrtle Avenue and Dresden Road Tuesday morning, forced her to go with him behind a vacant house, then raped her. 

Police say Fillmore was charged based on DNA evidence taken from the crime scene and matched with a sample taken from Fillmore from a previous case.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Fillmore was sentenced to three years in prison for assault in 1998 and to six months for drug trafficking in 2006.
