Friday, April 9, 2010

Timothy Krajcir, a confessed serial killer who received his 14th life sentence March 25 in Paducah, Ky., was moved from the McCracken County Jail at Paducah on Wednesday morning back to prison in Stateville, Ill. Krajcir was moved to Kentucky in early March to stand trial on kidnapping and first-degree burglary charges. He was three years into an 80-year sentence at the Stateville Correctional Center for murders in Williamson County and Jackson County, Ill. In addition to being sentenced to life in prison for the kidnapping of Joyce Tharp, whom he confessed to killing in Carbondale, Ill., Krajcir received a 20-year sentence for the burglary charge. In 2008 he confessed to five murders in Cape Girardeau in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
