SIOUX CITY (AP) -

A 24-year-old man accused of running over his girlfriend in a Sioux City shopping center parking lot has been given 10 years in prison.

Authorities say Anthony Barton was convicted on assault and another charge after prosecutors dropped two other charges in a plea agreement. On Monday Barton was sentenced to consecutive five-year sentences.

Police say Barton used a stun gun several times on 22-year-old Karilynn Schroeder and ran over her as he drove off with her vehicle Dec. 19 at Lakeport Commons shopping center.
