— A 20-year-old Raleigh man is accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Justin Caleb Crouse, of 4612 Limerick Drive, is charged with statutory rape involving a person more than four but less than six years younger, according to an arrest warrant.

The incident occurred on April 7, 2007.

Crouse was being held under a $500,000 bond at the Wake County Jail Thursday.

Crouse also faces a second-degree murder charge from a 2008 wreck that killed Chapel Hill High School graduate 17-year-old Lillian "Lilli" Broox Manis.
