Webster Groves man guilty of using chloroform on ex-girlfriend, sexually assaulting her

Posted: Updated:
ST. CHARLES COUNTY (KMOV) -- A Webster Groves man was found guilty Friday of using chloroform to knock out his ex-girlfriend, tie her up and sexually assault her.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Italo Rodolfo Pacheco Teran, 35, of the 400 block of Fieldcrest Drive, is guilty of eight felonies, including three counts of sodomy, one count each of rape, burglary, felonious restraint, child abuse and false imprisonment. 

Teran faces a maximum sentence of 170 years in prison. He is being held on a $250,000 bond.

Authorities say Teran entered the home of an ex-girlfriend in September while she and her two children were asleep. He subdued her with chloroform, bound her and then sexually assaulted her. Teran was wearing a mask, but he later removed it and the woman realized who the attacker was. 

The woman freed herself and found her 9-year-old daughter incoherent in the hall bathroom. Her 1-year-old son, Teran's biological child, was asleep in his crib.

The woman called 911, then fled with her daughter. When police arrived, Teran was seen walking out the front door carrying a bag that contained chloroform, duct tape, rope, rubber gloves, pantyhose and a camera.
