MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - A second central Indiana man has been sentenced in a case in which a woman was tortured with a nail gun.

The (Muncie) Star Press reports that 37-year-old Benitez McCullum was ordered Monday to spend 25 years in prison. McCullum had pleaded guilty to aggravated battery and criminal confinement charges.

Two women and a man were held against their will in a Muncie building in August 2016. Staples or nails were shot into the legs, abdomen and foot of one of the women.

Robert A. Walton was found guilty in September of criminal confinement, battery with a deadly weapon and other charges. He was sentenced to 39 years in prison.

McCullum, also of Muncie, was accused of hitting the male victim in the head with a shovel.
