ECTOR COUNTY - An Ector County man will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Osiel Alvarez pled guilty to robbing a woman in the HEB parking lot in August of 2013.

He was originally sentenced to 20 years for violating his probation.

But on Thursday, a judge tacked on the life sentence on top of the original 20 years.

The victim said Alvarez and his girlfriend pulled up in an SUV while she was walking toward the grocery store.

They grabbed her purse and hit the gas.

The woman fell while she was still holding onto her purse and was dragged.

She was able to break free but had some cuts and bruises.
