A Fairfield man accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a woman over a period of several months has been indicted by a Kennebec County grand jury on eight counts of gross sexual assault, two counts of aggravated assault and one count each of unlawful sexual touching and domestic violence assault.

The counts against Raymond R. Killam, 42, all involved the same victim and took place from April 9 to Sept. 19 in Waterville, according to the indictment.

The indictment was handed up Friday. An indictment is not a determination of guilt, but indicates that there is enough evidence to proceed with formal charges and a trial.

Killam, who was listed by police as a resident of Summer Street in Waterville at the time, was arrested Sept. 23 at the Waterville Police Department. Waterville police Chief Joseph Massey said at the time that a woman came to the police station to report that Killam had assaulted her sexually.

Police arrested and booked Killam at the station after the woman made the complaint and police had him come in for an interview.

Aggravated assault is a class B crime that carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. Gross sexual assault is a class A crime that carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a $50,000 fine

Killam was convicted in 2005 in Androscoggin County Superior Court of unlawful sexual contact and given a suspended four-year prison sentence, Massey said.

According to court records, Killam also was sentenced to a year in jail with all but two days suspended and two years of probation for a domestic violence assault in Clinton in July 2011 and was fined $200 for violating a protection order later that year in Clinton.
