(KSL News) The man accused of beating a woman then driving off with her 7-month-old baby could go to prison for the rest of his life.

Charges of first degree kidnapping and assault have been filed against Travis Plumb. According to court documents, Plumb tried to strangle Alisha Rondas then forced her out of the car and drove away with her baby boy inside.

The infant was found locked in the car a few hours later, sweaty but OK.

Since a child younger than 14 was involved in the case, the penalties Plumb face increase.

Robert Stott, with the Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office, said, "The first-degree felony has the potential of life in prison. The assault is a class B misdemeanor and carries just six months of possible imprisonment."

Plumb will make his initial appearance in court tomorrow.

The mother of the baby, Alisha Rondas, faces charges of reckless endangerment, public intoxication and possession of a controlled substance.
