TRAPPE — A Cordova man faces criminal charges in connection with allegations he tried to rape his ex-girlfriend’s brain-damaged daughter.
William Keyser, 65, is alleged on Feb. 25 to have been alone with the woman’s 25-year-old daughter, who suffered a traumatic brain injury several years ago and cannot care for herself.
