KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -

A Kansas City man was sentenced to 14 years in prison for the rapes of two young women in 1992.

Keith Harris, 49, was sentenced Monday for raping the 18- and 19-year-old women. Harris was arrested in December 2012 in Platte County, after his DNA profile matched evidence from the 1992 case.

The Kansas City Star reports the two victims told police they met Harris at a bar in Kansas City, KS, and agreed to ride with him in his semi-trailer truck. They said he stopped in Kansas City and raped them while threatening them with a knife.

Harris was sentenced to seven years each on two counts of rape. The sentence will run consecutively.
