MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - A Muncie man who tried to kill his former girlfriend with a homemade bomb has been sentenced to 101 years in prison.

The Star Press reports 40-year-old Lionel Ray Mackey Jr. received a maximum sentence Monday from Delaware Circuit Judge Linda Ralu Wolf on convictions from two separate trials. Wolf said Mackey was a menace to any woman he became involved with.

A jury found him guilty of attempted murder last month after a separate jury in April found him guilty of five other felony charges but deadlocked on the attempted murder charge.
