SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A West Salem woman has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison for beating a woman held captive in her home with a wooden closet rod.
The Statesman Journal reports the woman had been trapped in 46-year-old Irish Boyce's home for six weeks when she was discovered in October 2015.
Prosecutors say the victim went there in search of heroin but was tied to a bed, beaten, sexually assaulted and tortured.
Boyce's then-boyfriend, 31-year-old Ronnie Lee Jr., was convicted on more than two dozen counts in the case earlier this month.
Boyce pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and testified against Lee.
Polk County prosecutors agreed to a sentence Monday of five years and 10 months.
Authorities said Boyce -- who eventually alerted police -- participated in some attacks.
