ROCKFORD (AP) – An Illinois man has been sentenced for fatally shooting a Wisconsin woman while the two were passengers in a vehicle on a freeway.
A judge on Monday sentenced Kody Walsh of Rockford to 100 years in prison for first-degree intentional homicide and 10 years for unlawful aggravated restraint, to be served consecutively.
The Beloit Daily News reports Walsh also was sentenced to 6 years for eluding police.
Walsh was convicted of killing 36-year-old Lori Daniels of Afton, Wis., on Sept. 9, 2012, in an SUV traveling on Interstate 39/90 from Rockford to the Beloit area. Prosecutors say Walsh fired two shots in Daniels’ head and demanded the driver continue to Beloit. Walsh was captured a week later in Tennessee.
