ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY-An Isle of Wight Co. man is charged with rape which reportedly occurred 40 years ago.

63-year-old Danny S. Edwards turned himself in Friday, authorities said, on what may be the oldest case ever to be prosecuted in the county.

He was recently indicted on two counts of rape based on events that allegedly occurred in 1973 when the victim was 13 years old, sheriff's office spokeswoman Kristin Wilda said.

Edwards is in Tidewater Regional Jail.

Investigators are not identifying the accuser.
