FOREST CITY, Iowa - A Winnebago County man accused of kidnapping and sexual assault has been convicted.

A jury has found Lee Vandyke Carter, 49 of Thompson, guilty of false imprisonment and third-degree sexual abuse.

Carter was accused of abducting someone from Lake Mills on the evening of July 4 and taking them his home in Thompson. Investigators say the victim was beaten and forced to perform sexual acts and that Carter threatened to kill his victim.
