FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- A 30-year-old man who pleaded guilty last month to burglary resulting in bodily injury and three counts of armed robbery resulting in bodily injury, has been sentenced to 45 years behind bars.

Mark F. Johnson is one of two suspects who entered a home in the 2600 block of Pennsylvania Ave. on Oct.13 at around 5 a.m. The pair used a stun gun on the man in the home and kicked him in the face, according to court documents. Then they tied up the family with zip ties and robbed the home of cash, a car and a computer.

Allen Superior Court Judge Fran Gull handed down the 45-year sentence citing Johnson's prior convictions for reckless homicide, handgun possession and a operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated charge.
