Teton, New Mexico — Authorities say a man accused last week of raping a woman at her home has died.
A Teton woman told local news stations she went to the man’s house Sunday evening to make a report about a possible sexual assault.
The woman said the man called her and said he needed to talk.
She said she asked the man if he wanted to leave and then called 911.
The man told the dispatcher he was sorry, but that he was going to kill himself.
The Teton Fire Department responded to the home about 8:20 p.m.
Sunday and the fire was under control about an hour later.
