Krajcir to arrive in Cape County today
Timothy Krajcir will be transported from Tamms Correctional Center in Tamms, Ill., to the Cape Girardeau County Jail today, according to Sheriff John Jordan, but authorities aren't releasing to the public what time Krajcir will arrive.
Krajcir faces five first-degree murder charges in Cape Girardeau County, and three counts of rapes, all related to crimes that occurred in 1977 and 1982.
In December, Krajcir pleaded guilty to murdering Deborah Sheppard in Carbondale, Ill., in 1982, and in January, pleaded guilty to the 1978 murder of Virginia Lee Witte in Marion, Ill.
He is currently serving two 40 year sentences for those crimes.
Jordan said Krajcir will likely be housed in the older, secure part of the jail, not in the general population, for both his own protection and that of others.
