FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — A man who tied up a woman in her Rehoboth home then led police on a chase into Rhode Island where he threatened to kill himself has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
The Sun Chronicle (http://bit.ly/Tq4YEE ) reports that John Keough was sentenced in Fall River Superior Court after pleading guilty to armed assault in a dwelling and carrying a loaded firearm.
An accomplice, James MacDonald, who played a more limited role, was placed on probation for five years for charges including conspiracy to commit armed robbery.
A third man, Paul Matthews, was convicted last year and sentenced to 45 to 60 years in prison.
Police say Keough broke into a Rehoboth in September 2009 and led police on a chase into Pawtucket where he threatened to shoot himself.
