Judge rejects new rape trial for ex-Salem planning board member

The woman agreed to move in with Gray as his roommate at a rented Windham home in March 2011.
Wageling also said that Gray also failed to produce any evidence supporting his claim that the woman was lying about having sex with another, unidentified man.
Gray represented himself through the months of hearings seeking a new trial. He argued that the 34-year-old victim in the case had committed perjury during her trial testimony.
Wageling disagreed with that assessment and concluded that the results of the DNA test were consistent with the woman's testimony. The lab results conclude the only DNA found on the woman belonged to Gray "to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty, and excluding an identical twin."
A Windham police detective who testified at Gray's trial said the DNA sample was obtained through a rape kit conducted at a local hospital, but was never processed by the state lab.
