HAMPTON, Iowa (AP) - A 42-year-old Meservey man convicted of kidnapping and torturing a woman has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Charles Albright was sentenced Friday in Franklin County District Court. He was convicted in July of first-degree kidnapping and willful injury.

Prosecutors said Albright held a 36-year-old woman captive for 12 to 14 hours on Oct. 7 in Meservey, where she was punched, slammed against a floor, shocked with a stun gun and repeatedly bitten by a dog. She was then taken to Sheffield, where Albright continued beating her.

Her injuries included burns and broken bones in her face.

Albright also faces trial Sept. 26 on a felony explosives count, accused of having a bomb or bomb parts.
