IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 21-year-old Iowa man accused of killing his mother and abducting a woman after being released from prison last week underwent treatment as a teenager because he fantasized about raping women and almost acted upon his urges several times, according to a Wisconsin prosecutor.

Kirk Riley Levin once told police that he had duct tape in his backpack because he was planning to use it to rape a girl, and he was caught hiding in the basement of the home of another girl that he'd targeted to rape, Dane County, Wis., prosecutor Corey Stephan said at a hearing in 2009, according to a transcript. A doctor who counseled Levin warned that he would likely try to act on his violent sexual fantasies if he ever went off of unspecified medications, Stephan added.
