SYCAMORE, Ill. (AP) -- A woman who accused a Seattle man of raping her 50 years ago in a small Illinois town claims he also let two other men rape her.

The woman was the first witness Tuesday in the trial of 72-year-old Jack McCullough. He's charged with rape and indecent liberties with a child for the attack that allegedly occurred when the woman was a 14-year-old Sycamore resident.

She testified that he picked her up in a convertible in 1962, drove her to a house in an unfamiliar part of town and raped her before allowing two others to rape her.

She says she never saw the other men's faces.

McCullough is charged in a separate case with kidnapping and murder in the 1957 death of 7-year-old Maria Ridulph (RIHD'-uhlf), also of Sycamore.
