Columbia, SD man facing rape, kidnapping and 14 other counts

    ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - A judge has set a $1 million bond for a northeast South Dakota man charged with rape and other related counts.
     Fifty-five-year-old Thomas Kline faces 16 felony counts stemming from alleged incidents that date back to 2006.
     Court records show the crimes involved a single victim.
     The charges against the Columbia man include rape of a child, sexual contact of a child under the age of 16 and aggravated kidnapping. The latter charge carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison.
     It is unclear whether Kline has legal representation. He is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
