STANTON, Mich. (AP) -- A Michigan man who authorities say planted a sulfuric acid bomb that maimed a man dating his ex-girlfriend has been sentenced to 27 to 50 years in prison.

Eighth Judicial Circuit Court Judge Suzanne Hoseth Kreeger sentenced Steven Warren Stewart, formerly of Stanton, on Thursday for his role in building and planting the bomb that cost Derek Lehman the sight of his right eye and burned his left arm.

A jury found Stewart guilty in March of unlawful possession or use of harmful devices causing injury.

Stewart declined to make a statement in court but The Daily News of Greenville quoted his attorney, James Witzel, as saying his client maintained his innocence.
