LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 38-year-old man has been given three years in prison for beating a woman while holding her in her apartment for eight hours.

Online court records say Issac Lowery was sentenced Monday in Lancaster County District Court. He pleaded no contest to strangulation, false imprisonment and domestic assault after prosecutors dropped two other charges.

The woman reported in January that Lowery choked and punched her during the ordeal. She says she escaped after eight hours, ran to a gas station and called police for help.
