TROY, AL (WSFA) -

A Pike County man accused of robbery, and accused of kidnapping and other crimes, learned his fate in a courtroom Monday afternoon.

James Allen Christian will spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole.

A jury recently found Christian guilty of robbing Pete's Package Store in early 2011. During the robbery, the suspect assaulted two store clerks.

Also at the hearing, those in attendance in the courtroom learned that Christian is the lead suspect in the 2011 kidnapping of a Troy University student.

The victim in that case was kidnapped, assaulted and stabbed multiple times.

The judge in the case said he could not take a gamble on Christian hurting anyone else and decided on the life without parole sentence.

The kidnapping victim decided not to press any charges.
