'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.

A Uniontown man is accused of raping a 16-year-old girl as she slept on a couch.

Keith MacHugh Amos, 30, of 145 Lincoln St., is charged by Redstone police with rape, rape of an unconscious victim, sex assault, unlawful contact with a minor, aggravated indecent assault, unlawful restraint, terroristic threats and stalking.

The teen told police she was asleep on a couch at a Hunter's Ridge apartment early in the morning of May 12 when she awoke to find Amos raping her.

In another case, Amos is charged with simple assault and harassment. Police said he slapped a woman on May 14 at an apartment in Redstone when the woman confronted him over the rape allegations.

Amos, who is in the Fayette County Prison in lieu of $255,000 bond, faces a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 19 before District Judge Mike Defino.
