KC teen sentenced for attack on elderly couple

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -

A Kansas City man has been sentenced to life in prison for raping an 84-year-old woman during a break-in at the home she shared with her 93-year-old husband.

The sentence imposed Wednesday on 19-year-old Tony Putman also includes a total of 10 years for kidnapping and robbery. The Jackson County prosecutor says in all, Putman is expected to spend more than 34 years behind bars.

Putman pleaded guilty in March to charges linked to the July 2012 attack.

The woman told police she came home from running errands, heard her husband moaning and confronted an intruder who demanded money. The woman gave the intruder $400, after which he raped her and drove off in the couple's vehicle with some jewelry.

Putman was arrested about 30 minutes later.
