Payne Keeps Quiet As He Enters Jail
ALACHUA COUNTY - Shortly after noon on Thursday, the man suspected of brutally raping a jogger in Haile Plantation four years ago, arrived in shackles at the Alachua County Jail.
Andrew Payne Jr., 38, remained silent as reporters shouted questions at him.
Deputies escorted him out of a silver sedan and through the sliding glass doors of the jail.
Payne was arrested Tuesday morning in Coffee County, Georgia.
Detectives say DNA evidence helped connect Payne to the 2008 rape of a woman in Haile Plantation.
The 36-year-old victim was jogging around 6:30 in the morning when the attack happened.
The rape case became one of the most notorious in Alachua County history.
