NORMAN, Oklahoma -

DNA evidence leads to a rape charge in a more than 20 year old cold case.

The Cleveland County District Attorney's office confirmed that DNA linked Brian Bickham to the rape of a girl in 1987. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation's new DNA profiling system generated the match from a sample collected after the crime.

The victim told police the man blindfolded her and threatened to kill her if she said anything.

Bickham currently sits in prison in New Hampshire for an unrelated offense and he denies the Norman rape. A jury convicted Bickham of another rape in 1991.
