Kellen Winslow II, the former NFL player accused of rape, kidnapping, ordered to stand trial

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Kellen Winslow II, the former NFL tight end accused of rape, was ordered to stand trial in a San Diego courtroom Thursday.

Also Thursday, the Deputy District Attorney announced a new charge in the case, forcible rape, saying Winslow II is accused of committing the act in 2003 against a 17-year-old girl. Winslow II was 19 at the time. 

Winslow II will face several felony charges, including rape, forcible rape and kidnapping, as well as several misdemeanors. Bail Thursday was set at $2 million.

Jane Doe 2, a 59-year-old woman said to be a prostitute, took to the stand Thursday, saying she was picked up for coffee before being raped by Winslow II.

The woman said she is still scared of Winslow II because he reportedly threatened to kill her.

Prosecutors also said Thursday that DNA evidence was found in the pants of Jane Doe 1. Wednesday, a 58-year-old woman testified in court that a man, later identified as Winslow II rode his bicycle up to her home in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, asked if she was married, then took off his pants in front of her.

The woman said she was cutting flowers in her yard on the afternoon of May 24 when he came up and said hello.

The woman, who was identified as Jane Doe 3, said she recognized the man from a similar encounter two weeks earlier.

The man said his name was “David” and that he lived up the street. She said Winslow II asked if she was married. “I told him I was.”

The woman testified that on May 24 she walked toward her orange tree and noticed he was following her. That’s when he took off his pants, the woman testified.

A 71-year-old woman, identified as Jane Doe 4, said she learned of Winslow II’s arrest as she watched a newscast on June 8 and noticed he was the same man who entered her home the day before.

Jane Doe 4 said she called the sheriff’s department after being urged to do so by a friend, even though she didn’t feel Winslow II was ever going to harm her. She said she thought he was in the wrong mobile home park looking for someone.

A sheriff’s deputy testified that he responded to the park on North El Camino Real on the afternoon of June 7 after the woman said she saw a stranger inside her 86-year-old neighbor’s home.

The woman confronted the stranger, identified as Winslow II, as he came outside, the deputy testified.

"He said he was looking for his red dog named Flipper," the deputy testified. The 86-year-old woman who lived in the mobile home was asleep on the couch and her 86-year-old husband was out walking the dog when the defendant was inside, according to testimony.

Winslow II is also being charged with luring a 54-year-old transient into his Hummer and raping her on March 17.

She spoke about the brutal rape and being so terrified that she didn’t even consider trying to run away.

She was then asked if she saw the man in court. After a pause, she identified one of the defense attorneys instead of Winslow II, who, in court, had completely changed his appearance. Winslow II was clean shaven and wearing glasses and a suit.
