A 24-year-old Hyrum man has been ordered to stand trial on charges that he raped a Logan woman after breaking into her apartment.
Mark Steven Jensen was bound over to 1st District Court Friday following a preliminary hearing before 1st Circuit Court Judge Robert Daines.The judge said he found sufficient evidence to bind Jensen over on charges of rape, a first-degree felony, and burglary, a second-degree felony.
The victim testified that Jensen, an acquaintance, came to her home about 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 18 and forced his way in.
"I told him his wife was my friend, but he had a strange look on his face, and I was very frightened," she said.
The victim testified that she resisted Jensen's advances and kept trying to push him away, but was overpowered.
The defendant did not take the stand. He remains in the Cache County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.
