CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- A Chattanooga man will spend 35 years in prison for raping an elderly woman.

Kacy Cannon was re-tried earlier this year for the 1999 crime, after the State Supreme Court reversed his first conviction.

A jury again found him guilty, based on DNA.

Prosecutors said the 82-year-old woman was raking her yard in East Lake, when Cannon came up and asked for a drink of water. He then forced his way inside and raped her.

Prosecutors say the woman suffered back pain for the rest of her life as a result, she died in July.
