COLUMBUS: Attorney General Mike DeWine says Ohio’s crime lab has processed more than 1,500 untested rape kits from police and found hundreds of matches in testing those kits for DNA.

DeWine says the 1,585 kits processed by Bureau of Criminal Investigation scientists in the past 12 months surpassed the goal of 1,500 in the first year of a program to speed up testing.

The tests produced 505 matches with a criminal database, the results of which were referred to local police agencies who submitted the kits.

DeWine brought in four additional scientists to help in the first year of testing.

The attorney general says the goal is to process 3,000 kits in the initiative’s second year with plans to bring on six more scientists.
