MADISON, Wis.-- A former Wisconsin man is in custody in connection with a with a 23 year old sexual assault case.

Glendon Gouker faces charges of first degree sexual assault for allegedly raping a 20 year old woman at a park in Iola in 1990.  According to a news release from the Department of Justice, the break in the case came in 2011 when evidence was re-submitted to the state crime lab for analysis as part of a cold case double homicide investigation that happened in 1992 in Waupaca County.

Authorities say evidence from that case linked Gouker to the 1990 rape case. He was arrested and jailed in Oklahoma. An initial appearance is scheduled for Thursday in Waupaca County court.
