A man accused in a series of rapes in the Detroit area is due back in court today.

Ikeie Smith is scheduled to face a judge for a second set of charges.

Jury selection has been underway in four of nine cases against him involving rape, home invasion and other charges.

Last year, Smith was accused in almost 3 dozen attacks on women in eight metro Detroit communities dating back to 2011.

Prosecutors say DNA connects him to several of the cases.

If convicted, he's looking at life in prison.
