OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma County prosecutors have filed 47 charges against a suspected serial rapist and burglar.

Mario Lawson is charged under the alias Dormario Parker with four counts of rape, one attempted rape, one count of kidnapping, nine burglary charges, 19 robbery counts and 13 counts of attempted robbery.

District Attorney Wes Lane says Lawson was arrested and jailed under the alias Dormario Parker and the charges are filed under that name because a person must be charged under the name in which the defendant is booked.

Lane says there are a total of 30 victims and Lawson faces 36 separate life sentences plus 210 years if convicted on all counts.
