MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — A judge has denied bond for a man who is accused of raping a 78-year-old woman in her home in October.

AL.com reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/13evPXy ) that Mobile County District Judge Jay York said 45-year-old Calvin Levester Chambers could flee the area and could be a threat to the public if he is released. York says he may reconsider setting bond for Chambers in the future.

Police say Chambers consented to a DNA test that tied him to the Oct. 26 incident. Authorities say he gained entry through a rear door of the woman's home through a back door with a broken burglar bar. Police say Chambers and the unidentified victim did not know each other before the incident.

Officials say Chambers could face 20 years to life in prison.
