MACON, Ga. (AP) - Two men have been found guilty of torturing
and raping a Macon woman three years ago.

A Bibb County jury Wednesday convicted 34-year-old James Harris
and 41-year-old Wendell Simmons on charges of rape, sexual battery,
aggravated battery and simple assault.

They are scheduled to be sentenced Thursday.

A third man, 26-year-old Terry Sherrod Jackson, is also charged
in the crime.

He is being tried separately.

The 53-year-old victim testified that the man raped and sodomized her repeatedly over several hours in June 2005.

Both Simmons and Harris say they had been with the woman that day but left before she was attacked.
