MONROE, La. - A 35-year-old Monroe man has been sentenced to 110 years in prison for deliberately burning his girlfriend with a clothes iron.

The News-Star reports Allen Robinson was sentenced Tuesday by state District Judge Wendell Manning.

Robinson, arrested in 2010, was convicted in October of aggravated second-degree battery and second-degree kidnapping in what District Attorney Jerry Jones calls the worst domestic violence case he's ever seen.

After taking into consideration the severity of the crime, Robinson's extensive criminal history and his lack of remorse, Manning imposed the maximum sentence.

Alicia Freeman, the victim's sister, said she was pleased with the judge's decision to sentence Robinson to what is basically a lifetime in prison.
