A Douglas man accused of raping, indecently assaulting and harassing the same woman over 12 years has been committed to the Court of General Gaol Delivery for trial.
Joshua David Gray of School Road appeared before High Bailiff Jayne Hughes at Douglas Courthouse via a live videolink from the Isle of Man Prison.
The 30 year old denies two counts of rape, two of gross indecency with a child and one of harassment and has entered no plea to two charges of indecent assault.
Mrs Hughes remanded him in custody to appear at the higher court on a date to be fixed.
She extended legal aid and reporting restrictions were not lifted.
