WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A 24-year-old Wichita man has been convicted of raping and trying to kill a young girl just six weeks after he was released from prison.

A Sedgwick County jury on Thursday convicted Corbin Breitenbach of attempted capital murder, rape, criminal sodomy and burglary.

Witnesses said Breitenbach broke into a Wichita apartment in June of 2017 where the then-7-year-old girl was staying with her brother and a family friend. Prosecutors say he choked the girl until she was unconscious and then raped her.

Breitenbach, who acted as his own attorney during the trial, was convicted on two counts of aggravated sexual battery in 2013. The Wichita Eagle reports he was paroled in Sedgwick County in April 2017, six weeks before the girl was attacked girl.

Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 13.
