'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Murrysville police have accused a Wilmerding man of child rape.

Charles Herbert Roach IV, 20, was charged last week with two counts each of rape of a child; statutory sexual assault involving a child who is at least four years younger than he was; and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child.

He also was charged with one count each of aggravated indecent assault of a child, indecent assault of a person less than 13 years of age and indecent exposure.

According to court documents, the charges stem from incidents that happened in Murrysville from December 2012 through April 2013.

The victim told her mother about the relationship after someone walked in on them, according to the police affidavit.

The Murrysville Star does not identify victims of sex crimes.

Roach was arraigned in front of Magisterial Judge Charles Conway in Export on Wednesday. He is free on an unsecured $10,000 bail.

Roach is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in front of Conway on May 14 at 10:30 a.m.
