OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man has been given 80 to 130 years in prison for raping, kidnapping and savagely attacking a woman over her boyfriend’s debt.

Thirty-three-year-old Ronald Ford Jr. was sentenced on Wednesday. He and his girlfriend, 26-year-old Shavontae Green, were convicted for the attack on the 38-year-old woman. Green was sentenced Tuesday.

Authorities say Ford was upset because the woman’s boyfriend owed Ford money for a laptop computer. Ford and Green went to the boyfriend’s house in January but found only the woman there. She was beaten, and then they kidnapped her and took her to their home.

Prosecutors say the woman was beaten again, sexually assaulted, burned with a cigarette, whipped with a chain, doused with boiling water and splashed with bleach.
