Tifton-- A Tift County man will spend the rest of his life in prison for kidnapping a woman from her home.

Thursday afternoon, Arandu Arroyo Gomez was found guilty on 13 counts, including robbery and kidnapping. He was sentenced to 120 years in prison without parole, along with a consecutive life sentence.

 Investigators say he and Jose Bautesta rushed into "Sally" Herrera's Omega home last February, bound three people with duct tape, and took her.

District Attorney Paul Bowden says Bautesta pled guilty to kidnapping and robbery charges earlier this month and was sentenced to 60 years in prison without parole.
