(GOSHEN) - A Chicago man has been sentenced to the maximum 80 years in prison for shooting a man, then abducting his ex-girlfriend and their four children and holding them hostage at an Elkhart motel.

An Elkhart County judge told 31-year-old Jerry White on Thursday that he was among the worst of the worst and deserved the long sentence.

A jury last month convicted White on one count of attempted murder and eight counts of criminal confinement.
