Weems says Norris is sentenced to life without parole for each of the two counts of first-degree kidnapping and for one count of first-degree robbery. Norris was found guilty of those crimes in Calhoun County Circuit Court in October. He also faces charges of attempted murder and rape of one of the two women in Clay County. Norris is set to appear in a Clay County courtroom on April 22 on those charges. Turner also ordered Norris to pay $30,000 in fines and more than $10,000 in restitution.
