COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - A 58-year-old homeless man who kidnapped a Rathdrum woman in northern Idaho has been sentenced to life in prison.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports (https://bit.ly/1hJNn6f) that Mitchell Lee Walck received the sentence Tuesday in 1st District Court and must serve 20 years before being eligible for parole.

Walck in February pleaded guilty to robbery, second-degree kidnapping and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

In late 2012 Walck shot at Idaho police and eluded them during a car chase. He kidnapped a northern Idaho woman, using her vehicle, and traveled to Montana, where he released her unharmed.

He was taken into custody in North Dakota after pulling a gun on a trucker and being found hiding in a tractor-trailer.

He received a 10-year sentence for his crimes in North Dakota.
