INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (AP) — A jury has convicted a Waterloo man for kidnapping and trying to kill a woman by intentionally wrecking the car they were in last April.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports that 55-year-old Ronald Share was convicted Friday of kidnapping, attempted murder, willful injury and eluding police. He faces a mandatory life sentence on the kidnapping count alone when he's sentenced June 25.

Prosecutors say Share kidnapped a woman who had a restraining order against him and told her he was going to kill her by crashing the car he forced her into. She called 911, and when police spotted the car and tried to stop it, Share led them on a chase reaching 100 mph on I-380 in northeastern Iowa. Police say he then intentionally drove the car into a guardrail while speeding at about 90 mph, causing serious injuries to the woman and himself.
