ONAWA — A Wyoming man was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for kidnapping and raping a 19-year-old woman at knifepoint in a rest stop bathroom near Onawa.
Mark Bitzan, 24, was sentenced Friday for his January convictions of first-degree kidnapping and second-degree sexual assault.
The Monona County attorney said Bitzan took the victim to a bathroom stall at an Interstate 29 rest stop in 2010, threatened her with a knife and sexually assaulted her.
Bitzan was convicted in 2006 of a sexual assault in Natrona County, Wyo. — AP
