Man arraigned for two Boston rapes after prosecutors say novel DNA...

Dwayne McNair, 33, of Dedham, had bail set at $500,000 today on charges he and a pal raped one woman in Forest Hills and another on Mission Hill in 2004, after the Suffolk County District Attorney's office and Boston Police got back test results they say proved the DNA found in a used condom saved by one of the victims could not have come from McNair's twin brother. McNair will now become the first person in the US to go to trial based on a new testing method by a European company, Eurofins Scientific, which announced only in December, 2013 that it had developed a testing method that could detect subtle differences in the DNA of even identical twins.
