BARTOW (FOX 13) -

A man who raped a woman and tried to use bleach to cover up the evidence will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Richard Delgado-Cruz was sentenced today.

Deputies say he and his brother Danny committed the horrific crime in Polk County last May.

Detectives say the brothers forced their way into a home in Poinciana. They say they tied up the father and son, then raped the son's wife.

Deputies found a stolen truck nearby; that's how they figured out who their suspects were.

Inside that truck were several items used in the attack, including a machete.

Lawyers for Danny Delgado-Cruz" are arguing he isn't mentally competent to stand trial.
