PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) -- A convicted serial killer serving 15 life prison terms has been sentenced in a Paducah cold case that did not result in a killing.
A judge gave Timothy Krajcir (KRAYT'-jur) another 65 years in prison during a sentencing hearing Wednesday in Paducah.
According to The Paducah Sun (http://bit.ly/JiMMJD ), Krajcir admitted breaking into a house, forcing a boy to wrap himself in a blanket and sexually abusing the child's mother, who has since died. 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 told the court he was glad the boy followed his orders or he would have likely killed the child and his mother.
Another Paducah woman, Joyce Tharp, was among the victims killed.
