Man Sentenced to 200 Years in Ala. Home Invasion

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- A man has been sentenced to 200 years in prison in the severe beating of a Montgomery woman during a September home invasion.

Wilanu Collins was sentenced Wednesday on three counts of robbery, a count of burglary and a count of attempted murder in an attack that left the then 72-year-old wife of former state Rep. Claud Walker with a fractured skull. Authorities have said a housekeeper was also injured.

The man's accomplice, 32-year-old Elton Wallace, has also pleaded guilty to robbery and burglary.

Reports say five people testified on behalf of 36-year-old Collins -- including his parents. Collins told the court that he wasn't the one who carried out the attack.
