YOUNGSTOWN, OH (WOIO) - The man accused of raping a South Range Elementary student reportedly had burns on his body at Monday's court hearing.
that 46-year-old Robert Seman Jr.'s burns, which were covered with makeup, were revealed Wednesday when he went to the hospital. Agents from the
spent Thursday night combing through Seman's Mahoning County home searching for evidence in connection to the deaths of his victim and two family members who were living with her.
The rape victim, 10-year-old Corinne Gump, and her grandparents, Bill and Judy Schmidt, were killed early Monday morning in a fire on Powers Way in Youngstown. The fire started in the basement, but the cause is still unknown.
According to the Mahoning County Coroner's Office, the three victims died from smoke inhalation. A ruling on if the deaths were accidental or intentional will not come until the cause of the fire is determined.
Seman's bond was revoked after the fire. He is charged with four counts of rape.
Corinne was getting ready to testify that Seman raped her over the course of several years, but that day in court never came.
Seman's trial was supposed to start on Monday, but has been postponed due to the fire.
Since his indictment last April, Seman had been awaiting trial on house arrest.
So far, no word on what evidence -- if any -- investigators removed from his home.
Calling hours for Corinne are Saturday from 3-6 p.m. at Davis-Becker Funeral Home in Boardman. Funeral services will take place Monday.
