Bond denied for Grovetown teen who raped and mutilated underage girlfriend

A case filed against a Grovetown teenager in September is still under active investigation and yielding new evidence, according to Grovetown Inv. Matthew Williamson.

Kain Harris Lord, who turned 17 on Nov. 29, was transferred from the juvenile facility to the Columbia County Detention Center. Lord is charged as an adult for the rape and aggravated battery of a juvenile female.

According to authorities, Lord bound the hands and feet of the victim using green nylon rope and had sex with the girl “forcibly and against her will.”

The warrants against him describe how, at some point during the attack, Lord used a box cutter to carve “Kain” into the victim’s chest and pubic area, resulting in blood loss and scarring.

The rape allegation surfaced on Sept. 21 when the victim’s mother reportedly found a note about the sexual assault. She then reported it to law enforcement. The case is investigated by the Grovetown Department of Public Safety.

“Due to the nature of the crime and the age of the victim, there’s not much I can say,” Williamson said. “We are still investigating and discovering new evidence in the case.”

Lord’s attorney, Isabella Levy, filed for a bond hearing with Judge Blanchard which took place Oct. 19. That bond was denied.

Lord has not yet been indicted by a grand jury, so no arraignment has been scheduled at this time.
