(Memphis) Tests performed on a rape kit from 2011 helped send a 32-year-old Memphis man to prison for 23 years with no chance for parole.

Wayne Sellers was convicted in August of raping a 64-year-old woman near Downtown two years ago.

Investigators arrested Sellers six-months after the crime when they found DNA on the victim and stored in a rape kit that matched a saliva sample from Sellers.
