Wheeler In Court

A Richland man is sentenced six years in prison this morning after admitting to kidnapping his ex-girlfriend's daughter in October of 2012.

Rodney Wheeler pleaded guilty in the middle of his trial last month to locking the victim in the trunk of a car and using her phone to lure her mother to him.

Police found the victim near the Yakima airport -- she was not seriously harmed.

Wheeler will be credited with time already served--so he has just under five years of prison time remaining.
