Man freed pending rape charges faces new allegations

MANCHESTER, Conn. --An East Hartford man who was free on a promise to appear in court on Wednesday on a rape charge faces new accusations in an alleged rape and attempted murder.
Michael Quiles, 20, was held on $5 million bail Tuesday after he was arraigned in Manchester Superior Court on the new charges.
Judge Raymond Norko, reading the affidavit on Quiles' arrest over the weekend and referring to a separate rape case pending, called the matter shocking. The judge said he will transfer the new case to Superior Court in Hartford where more serious cases are tried.
Quiles was arrested Saturday night, charged with raping a woman who lives in his apartment building, police said.
The woman told police that she struggled and cried during the attack and that Quiles warned her to not tell anyone, police said.
Police say Quiles grabbed the woman's head and tried to snap her neck, twisting her head back and forth. She pleaded for her life and promised to not tell anyone when Quiles suddenly released her, police said.
The woman called police, who arrested Quiles on charges of attempt to commit felony murder, first-degree sexual assault, third-degree sexual assault, threatening, unlawful restraint and first-degree reckless endangerment.
At the time of the attack, Quiles was free on a written promise to appear in court for proceedings in a separate case involving the rape of a young mentally retarded woman on Dec. 9, 2005, in East Hartford..........

just what the HELL was the judge in the FIRST case thinking? i guess she may not have been thinking at all....
