Matkovich accused of rape and kidnapping

Posted: Feb 03, 2018 5:36 PM Updated:

The Deputy County Attorney of Cascade County has asked the court to charge Brett B. Matkovich with several felonies including sexual intercourse without consent after allegedly raping a woman and injecting her with methamphetamine. 

According to court documents, a woman wrote a letter to law enforcement detailing an incident that occurred in May of 2017.

After police received the letter, they contacted the alleged victim and another woman - identified in court documents by the pseudonyms Jane Doe and Jenn Roe - who provided statements and additional details.

The documents state that Matkovich drove Doe and Roe to a casino using another person's vehicle. 

Doe and Roe stayed in the vehicle while Matkovich went inside the casino. Doe saw a box of new syringes in the car and reached to grab some. The two women then went into the casino.

According to court documents, Matkovich, who had been watching from the casino window, asked Roe if Doe stole something from the car. Roe replied that she wasn't sure. Matkovich then said Doe was going to get beat up that night.

Matkovich, Doe, and Roe left the casino with two other people and were headed to a trailer court when Doe and Roe noticed Matkovich was driving in the opposite direction.

Matkovich told them he needed to meet someone who had money for him down a dirt road.

The documents continue that Doe thought Matkovich was "driving crazy" so she asked to drive. When she started climbing over the center console, Matkovich hit her and knocked her unconscious. 

Matkovich then pulled Doe from the vehicle and kneed her in the face. Roe said Doe instantly began making snoring noises and Roe screamed.

Matkovich then threw Doe into the backseat of the vehicle and continued driving.

The two other people in the car were allowed to get out at the trailer court.

According to court documents, Roe believed Matkovich had killed Doe. At some point, Doe was coming in and out of consciousness.

She asked what happened and Matkovich told her that it was her one chance to "come clean" and asked what she stole from him earlier.

Doe replied that she had not stolen anything and Matkovich said, "Your guys' ride isn't over."

While driving down the road, the documents state that Matkovich hit Doe and Roe tried to escape at one point but Matkovich asked her what she was doing.

Matkovich told Roe that he "had gone too far" and he "needed to kill her." 

He then accused Roe of stealing from him and said he would have to kill her as well.

The documents continue that Matkovich asked Roe if she knew how many people he had killed and whether she and Doe would like to be numbers "four" and "five."

Matkovich also asked Doe if she wanted to die. Doe said no and apologized for stealing and said she and Roe would not tell on him. 

Matkovich demanded Doe give him the names of her children, where they lived, and who they lived with. He then wrote down the information.

According to court documents, Doe and Roe pleaded with Matkovich to let them go and said they wouldn't tell anyone about the incident. 

Matkovich replied, "I got you [expletive]. If anything happens with this, I'm not coming after you, I'm coming after your kids."

Matkovich then drove the women to the Royal Motel where his father was staying and made them go inside. 

He demanded they take their clothes off in a hotel room and told Doe to get in the shower. 

The documents state that Roe noticed Doe was still coming in and out of consciousness and could barely walk on her own. 

Matkovich took Doe into the bathroom and raped her. 

Matkovich's father came into the room and told his son that he could not hold the women hostage as his father was on probation. Matkovich argued that Doe and Roe were free to leave at any time.

Doe and Roe both stated they did not feel free and were scared because Matkovich had written the names of Doe's children down.

The documents continue that Matkovich also injected Doe with meth to keep her awake. 

Doe estimated that she and Roe were held in the hotel for about 12 hours before they were able to leave.

Doe went to the emergency department and medical records reveal she suffered black and blue bruising to her eyes, a swollen jaw and left shoulder, and pain to the back of her head. She also suffered a concussion.

Matkovich was on probation for a conviction of Criminal Endangerment when the incident occurred.

The charges would include four felonies for sexual intercourse without consent, aggravated assault, and two counts of kidnapping. A misdemeanor charge for partner or family member assault is also included.
