DAGSBORO, Del. — A 31-year-old Delaware man has been sentenced to 90 years in prison for crimes including rape and attempted murder committed against a number of women.

The Delaware Department of Justice said in a news release Friday that Temourise Taylor of Dagsboro was a serial rapist who would get women into his car, drive them to a secluded location and sexually assault them while threatening to kill them or physically beating them.

He pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder and no contest to second-degree rape, unlawful imprisonment, strangulation and terroristic threatening.

The department says Taylor will have to complete sex offender treatment and anger management counseling while in prison.
