]. 29-year-old Kentucky man with a history of being declared incompetent to stand trial -- following allegations of sexual assault and other crimes -- is now accused in a brutal attack on an 8-year-old girl, according to reports.
Authorities in Louisville say Cane Madden, 29, is scheduled for arraignment Monday after being arrested early Saturday for allegedly whacking the child in the head with a shovel, fracturing her skull, then raping her.
Madden was accused of at least one previous sex crime, WDRB reported. In that 2017 case, according to police, Madden “bit the victim on her face above her left eye, removing a large chunk of the victim’s face.”
The charges in that case were dismissed after a judge found Madden incompetent to stand trial, the station reported. Madden has also seen other assault cases against him dismissed, according to the Courier-Journal.
