GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A 27-year-old Gulfport man will serve 45 years in prison for sexually assaulting a woman he also threatened to shoot.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1NugTtV) a jury on Wednesday convicted Kuren Cordell Keys of two counts of forcible sexual assault in the Nov. 29, 2013, attack.

Circuit Judge Chris Schmidt sentenced Keys to 15 years on one count to run consecutively to a 30-year sentence on the second count. Keys is not eligible for parole or probation.

The victim testified at the trial. She said Keys drove her to a rural Harrison County, pulled out a box cutter and also threatened to shoot her before assaulting her.
