A rape suspect is in the Wilson County Jail after being extradited from Mesa, AZ, last week.

Investigators said they believe Kirby left Tennessee after a "horrific assault" on a woman.

According to Sheriff Robert Bryan, the alleged victim "could have been easily killed."

Kirby is described as being "extremely violent." He is serving a 26-year prison sentence in Arizona for assaulting an officer.

Kirby is charged with aggravated rape, aggravated assault and theft of property in Wilson County. A hearing date has not been set at this time.
