A second man faces charges in connection to the rape and robbery of an elderly woman in November 2001 in Harrison County.

The Harrison County Prosecuting Attorney's office said charges were filed against Adam Bowers after DNA tests were done.

Bowers is an inmate in the Northern Correctional Center.

Joseph Buffey pleaded guilty to charges related to the incident but is now fighting his imprisonment with help from the Innocence Project.

It's unclear if the men knew each other prior to the incident.

The Prosecutor's Office said Bowers' charges don't imply Buffey's innocence.
