According to the agreement, Barnes will serve 35 years in prison and a five-year period of supervised release.

Barnes is charged with kidnapping a woman and taking her to Maryland. After an extensive two-day search by Philadelphia Detectives and pleas from her family, the victim and suspect were found inside his car in a parking lot.

When Delvin Barnes was arrested, police say he confessed.

Barnes is also accused of abducting and raping a girl in Virginia. Charles City County prosecutors set aside charges against Barnes in the kidnapping of a 16-year-old Richmond girl in October. Legal experts say it is customary for state officials to defer to federal authorities.

Authorities say Barnes hit the Richmond teen in the head with a shovel, forced her into the trunk of his car, and brought her back to his Charles City County home where deputies say he raped her and then poured bleach and gasoline on her.
