A southwest Iowa man, already in prison for raping two women in Nebraska, has pled guilty to three counts of sexual abuse in Iowa.
Pottawattamie County Attorney Matt Wilber says the case against 46-year-old Todd Mills of Shelby spanned both states. “We had a joint investigation going because Mr. Mills had victimized ladies on both sides of the river,” Wilber said.
Mills was sentenced in September to up to 140 years in prison after being convicted of sexually assaulting two women at gunpoint in Omaha. He was also charged with four counts of kidnapping and sexually assaulting four women in Iowa from 2008 to June 2010. The women were left along a county road in rural area near Council Bluffs.
Terms of the agreement with prosecutors means Mills will spend more time in an Iowa prison. “He will get 50 years in Iowa and have to do a minimum of 35 before he’d be eligible for parole,” Wilber said. Mills’ Iowa trial was scheduled to begin next Tuesday.
