PAW PAW, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan man has been sentenced to 17 to 40 years in prison for assaulting his estranged girlfriend with the intent to commit murder.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1pD6iPj ) 23-year-old Kane Reeves was sentenced Monday as a third-time habitual offender. He was found guilty of the assault charge and first-degree home invasion in August following a bench trial.

Van Buren County authorities say Reeves suspected his girlfriend of having an affair in October 2013. They describe the attack near Paw Paw as “vicious” and say he beat the woman so badly that she required reconstructive surgery on her face.

Authorities say she is the mother of his three children and testified during his trial.
