Man Accused in Deaths of Two North Texas Women Faces Sex Assault Charges

Accused rapist facing a third charge dating back to 2014

The man accused of raping and killing two North Texas women is now facing additional charges regarding an alleged sexual assault from 2014.

Reginald Kimbro, 23, is currently jailed in Tarrant County.

He faces capital murder charges for the deaths of Molly Matheson, 22, of Fort Worth, and Megan Getrum, 36, of Plano.

According to police, Kimbro killed Getrum – a woman he did not know – just days after killing Matheson, a woman he briefly dated.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Kimbro had been accused of sexual assault twice before – in Plano in 2012 and at a resort in South Padre in 2014. In the affidavit, police said Kimbro knew both of the women and was accused of strangling them during the assault.

In the 2012 case, Kimbro claimed the sex was consensual and the charges were dismissed. In the 2014 case, prosecutors declined to pursue the case for an unknown reason.

Wednesday, however, that changed.

Kimbro has now been indicted on charges of aggravated sexual assault and sexual assault in the 2014 case, according Yvette Vela, spokeswoman for the the district attorney's office in Cameron County, in far southern Texas.

Velam said that since it is a pending case, they cannot comment on why charges were filed now.

More information will be released once a trial date is set.
