An area man has been accused of sexual assault, the second person to be charged in the case.

Ryan Markley, 26, North Liberty, was charged on Jan. 21 with second-degree sexual abuse.

According to a police complaint, several Iowa City officers responded to a Van Buren Street address on Feb.16, 2013, after a young woman reported she had been attacked and sexually assaulted. The investigation continued over the course of the last 11 months and through a collection of data and evidence, it was determined that the defendant participated in the attack of the victim.

The defendant was interviewed on Feb. 16, 2013, after the attack; he did not admit to being involved.

Investigators used DNA to charge Markley. They had previously charged University of Iowa student Joshua Venckus in the case.

Second-degree sexual abuse is a Class-B felony.
