(Scroll down for video) A man of Grand Rapids, Michigan, was sentenced to life in prison for raping an older woman.

31-year-old Shane Chambers, who brutally assaulted and raped the 77-year-old woman, came face to face with the victim’s daughter after sentencing.

The daughter of the victim told Chambers that she hopes he experiences in prison the same fate that her mother suffered at his hands.

Chambers was arrested after he entered the house of the woman as she was asleep on her couch. The woman testified in court that she woke up with a man on top of her. Chambers beat the woman unconscious.

She awoke hours later to find her panties had been removed. Authorities determined she had been sexually assaulted. The beating left her with a broken nose and lacerations, which required staples.

Chambers was arrested after police found him with the victim’s belongings and credit cards.

The jury also heard from a 74-year-old woman, who was raped by Chambers in 2003. During the rape, Chambers allegedly told the victim he liked older women.
