Missouri man sentenced for raping 2 young girls in Arkansas

BLYTHEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - An 18-year-old Missouri man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to raping two young girls in Arkansas.
    
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Carlo Love of Kennett, Missouri, was sentenced Monday and his prison term will be followed by a 10-year suspended sentence.
    
Prosecutors say the victims, ages 8 and 11, were at their grandfather's house last November in Mississippi County, in northeast Arkansas, when Love asked if they wanted to "play a game."
    
He then locked himself in a room with the girls.
    
The children were later taken to a hospital where DNA evidence was recovered.
    
Love was arrested two weeks later.
    
Scott Ellington, prosecuting attorney for the 2nd Judicial District, described Love as a sexual predator.
