ROCKFORD, IL (WTAQ) - A 24-year-old Illinois man will spend the rest of his life in prison for killing a Janesville area woman, while the two were in a vehicle on the Interstate.

Kody Walsh of Rockford was sentenced Monday to 100 years in prison for homicide, plus 10 more years for aggravated restraint.

A jury in Rockford convicted Walsh just over a month ago. He shot and killed 36-year-old Lori Daniels in September of 2012, while the two were riding in a vehicle on I-90 near South Beloit.

After the shooting, Walsh shot at the driver, stole the vehicle, and led police on a chase until the unit crashed. He then ran off, and was captured in Tennessee a week later.

Walsh was sentenced to six years in prison for eluding police, to be served at the same time as his other sentences.
