An Opp man pleads guilty after he is accused of raping an elderly woman.

The Covington County District Attorney's office says Corey Darnell Matthews is receiving a life sentence for raping a 79-year-old woman.

It happened January 2012 -- investigators say Matthews entered the victim's home in the middle of the night and held a knife to her throat. That's when he is believed to have raped her.

The DA's office says Matthews is a four-time convicted felon.
