A 25-year-old convicted serial killer who used dating apps to lure and kill three women in 2016 was sentenced to 160 years on Wednesday, the Associated Press reports.
Family and friends of the three women, and another woman who managed to escape, read aloud victim impact statements as Khalil Wheeler-Weaver sat motionless, the AP reports.
Before his sentence, he told the judge that he was set up and framed before denying responsibility for his crimes.
A jury in 2019 found him guilty of 11 charges, including three counts of murder and desecration of human remains, attempted murder, two counts of aggravated sexual assault, aggravated arson and kidnapping.
…A woman, whose identity is being withheld since she was sexually assaulted, survived being attacked by Wheeler-Weaver. On Wednesday, she told the judge not show him mercy, the AP reported.
“My whole life is different; I don’t wear makeup anymore; I don’t have friends. I’m always paranoid. But I’m happy to still be here,” she said. She told the judge, “I hope you don’t show him any remorse, because he’s not showing any remorse.”
