Prosecutor asks for sentence enhancement in Joelle Lockwood case

POSEY CO., IN (WFIE) - The trial is one week away for Rickey House--the man accused of holding a woman captive in a cage for a month.

On Tuesday, he made an appearance in court after the prosecutor asked for a sentence enhancement if convicted.

Posey County Prosecutor Travis Clowers wants the jury to reconvene if House is found guilty.

He says he wants them to look over the crime where a gun may have been used.

House would be looking at an additional 5-20 years on that charge if convicted.
