INDIANAPOLIS, IN. - Three men were sentenced today for serious Sexual Assaults, Serial Rapes and Homicides in Indianapolis committed from 2008 to 2012.

Donald Wilson
The first, Donald Wilson, 32, had committed a series of rapes in the Irvington area of Indianapolis including the beating and rape of a 15-year-old girl. Wilson was previously on probation from an incident in 1999 for counts including burglary, rape, criminal deviate conduct and battery with injury.

Quanardel Wells
The second serial rapist, Quanardel Wells, 32, found guilty of sexual assaults on four women in 2009 was sentenced to 100 years incarceration Thursday.

Quanardel Wells was convicted of confining, raping, torturing and abusing four prostitutes in 2009 in a home on 10th Street. Wells was acquitted by multiple juries on other five cases between 1998 and 2005 until a DNA match connected him to a rape that happened in 2008.

In 2010, he was convicted for the 2008 sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl who was walking home from a friend’s house. He was convicted to 80 years for that sentence.

His new sentence will run consecutively with the 80-year sentence in the Indiana Department of Corrections.

The 100-year sentence must be served after Wells, 43, finishes an 80-year sentence in the 2008 rape of a teenage girl, effectively meaning he will spend the rest of his life behind bars. Even with credit for good behavior, Wells would not be eligible for release until 2099 — when he would be 129.

Challie Gray
The last man to be sentenced today, Challie Gray, was tried and convicted of killing his girlfriend at their home.

In January of 2012, IMPD officers were called to the 400 block of North Rybolt Avenue on a report of shots fired. They found 41-year-old Regina Roska dying of with multiple gunshot wounds. She was taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time later.

Witnesses told police they heard multiple gunshots and saw Roska's live-in boyfriend run from the house. He was later tracked down in the 600 block of North Lynhurst Drive where he was arrested.

Gray was sentenced to 62 years for the January 2012 murder of his girlfriend.
