INDICE DE GALERIAS
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A man convicted of kidnapping a Council Bluffs woman last year has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Bryan Bey, of Crescent, yelled expletives at Fourth District Court Judge Kathleen Kilnoski during the Friday sentencing. The 40-year-old also yelled that prosecutors planted evidence and coerced witnesses.
The Council Bluffs Nonpareil reports (http://bit.ly/1bing0J ) a jury convicted Bey in May of first- and second-degree kidnapping in the beating and abduction of Tabitha Proplesch in May 2012. She was rescued after the vehicle that Bey was transporting her in ran out of gas.
Bey represented himself during the trial. A public defender assigned for the sentencing attempted motions for a new trial, but Kilnoski denied them. She did merge Bey's two counts into one.
