Serial Killer Sentenced in Cold Case

Convicted serial killer Timothy Krajcir

A convicted serial killer serving 15 life prison terms has been sentenced in a western Kentucky cold case that didn't result in a killing.
A judge gave Timothy Krajcir another 65 years in prison during a sentencing hearing Wednesday in Paducah.
According to the Paducah Sun, Krajcir admitted breaking into a house, forcing a young man to wrap himself in a blanket and sexually abusing his mother.  Krajcir also pleaded guilty to robbery and burglary in the 1978 incident.
In court, Krajcir said he regretted the trauma and heartbreak he caused.  Krajcir said he was glad the man followed his orders or he would have likely killed him and his mother. Krajcir has admitted killing women in four states, including two in southern Illinois and five in southeast Missouri.
