WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – A Warren man received his punishment Wednesday for holding a woman and her children hostage last summer.
Shawn Riley was sentenced to 65 to 97-and-a-half years in prison.
In April, he pleaded guilty to 16 charges, including attempted murder and aggravated burglary.
Riley held a woman and her three children at knifepoint in a Highland Terrace apartment on Lane Drive last August.
There was a four-hour standoff with law enforcement before officials convinced him to let everyone out safely. He was then arrested.
