SEATTLE — A mother of four who is accused of breaking into a West Seattle home and raping a sleeping man pleaded not guilty in King County Superior Court Thursday to second-degree rape.

The judge in the case denied bail to the defendant, Chantae M. Gilman.

A 31-year-old West Seattle man told police he went to bed on June 17, 2013, and awoke from a deep sleep to find Gilman on top of him and having sexual intercourse with him.

Police said Gilman told them that she didn’t know the man and didn’t recall being at his home or having sex with him.

Court documents said a DNA test showed that Gilman’s DNA had been on the victim’s body.

Gilman’s lawyer told the judge that Gilman suffers from mental illness and has a history of drug abuse.

She is a mother of four children and is pregnant with her fifth child, lawyers said.

Gilman has prior felony convictions for possession of a stolen vehicle and attempted robbery.
