DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) - A central Ohio man has been sentenced to 38 years in prison for kidnapping, burning and raping an 18-year-old man.

Prosecutors in Delaware County in suburban Columbus say 45-year-old Larry Fox and his uncle Harry Fox handcuffed the teen, stripped him naked, burned and tormented him at Larry Fox’s mobile home in October 2012. He also forced the victim to perform a sex act on his uncle.

A jury in August convicted Larry Fox of charges including kidnapping and rape. Larry Fox believed the victim owed him money.

Harry Fox, now 62, was sentenced last year to 13 years in prison. He pleaded guilty and agreed to testify against his nephew.

Judge Duncan Whitney said Monday’s sentence was intended “to illustrate how warped this conduct was.”
