(Newser) – North Carolina cops have charged a second man in the rape of a woman that authorities say was arranged by her husband on Craigslist, reports the Charlotte Observer. Rodney Liverman, 39, faces a first-degree rape charge, along with three other sex offenses, and was jailed on $250,000 bond. Craigslist helped authorities locate Liverman, reports the AP; the victim's husband has already been charged.

Police said a man entered a home with a knife and went into the woman's bedroom, demanded money and ordered her to take off her clothes before raping her. The victim at one point grabbed his knife, and threw it to her husband, who made no move to help her. He later told her to take a shower and not call the cops.
