CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A man dubbed the 'Grim Reaper Rapist' is in jail and sentenced Wednesday for brutal attacks that took place in Aransas Pass in 2013. 

40-year-old Adrian Martinez, dubbed the Grim Reaper Rapist for a tattoo he has, was matched to DNA from at least two rapes in Aransas Pass and one rape case in Houston.

Investigators were able to get Martinez's DNA from the victim and the scene.
