Two Life Sentences for Edward W. Edwards

From the Associated Press:

Aging Kentucky con man Edward W. Edwards has been sentenced to two life terms in prison for killing a Wisconsin couple 30 years ago.

The sentence in Jefferson County Circuit Court Monday comes just 10 days after Edwards pleaded guilty to killing another couple near Akron, Ohio, in 1977 and was given two life sentences in that state. The 77-year-old Edwards will serve his sentences in Ohio.

He won't be eligible for parole consideration in Ohio until he is 97.

Edwards told The Associated Press last week that he killed a fifth person in 1996, a 24-year-old man he considered a foster son.
