Waterloo man will get new prison sentence

A Waterloo man has won a court appeal and will get a new prison sentence.

Zachary Kolberg, 21, was sentenced to 30 years in prison after being convicted of burglary and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse causing injury after a 2009 incident in which prosecutors say he broke into his ex-girlfriend's house and assaulted her.  The girl's mother reportedly broke a ceramic pot over Kolberg's head when he tried to run.

The Iowa Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday that the two charges should have been merged because they stemmed from common elements.

The case has been sent back to trial court for resentencing.
