LUFKIN, Texas (AP) - A Lufkin man who says he head-butted and
bit an ex-girlfriend in a show of love must serve 50 years in
prison for abducting and raping her.
An Angelina County jury on Tuesday convicted 33-year-old
Tavaeras Lamont Kimble in the 2007 kidnapping and sexual assault
case.
Kimble was sentenced to 50 years for aggravated sexual assault,
10 years for kidnapping, five years for burglary of a habitation
and fined $17,000.
The sentences will run concurrently. Kimble must serve at least
25 years before being eligible for parole.
Prosecutors say the woman was kept two days against her will
until Kimble allowed her to go into a grocery store, where she
asked a worker for help.
Defense attorney Bill Agnew said there was insufficient
evidence.
