BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A New Town man who authorities say chained a woman he was dating to a car seat and beat her has been sentenced to serve 3 ½ years in federal prison.

KXMB-TV reports that 23-year-old Caleb Heart admitted in court to chaining the woman’s wrists to the car seat’s headrest in June 2014. Authorities say Heart hit the woman multiple times. She suffered face, neck and wrist injuries.

Court documents show Heart pleaded guilty to an assault charge in federal court under a deal with prosecutors and was sentenced Monday. He will be on supervised release for three years following his prison time.
