A man originally charged with killing seven people more than a decade ago was sentenced Friday to 245 years in prison for three of the slayings and the rape of a teenage girl.
Eugene Britt, who turns 49 on Saturday, will serve that sentence concurrently with his sentence of life in prison plus 100 years for the 1995 slaying of an 8-year-old girl.
Britt pleaded guilty but mentally ill on Oct. 6 to murder in the perpetration of rape in the deaths of Nakita Moore, 14, Tonya Dunlap, 24, and Maxine Walker, 41; and in the rape of the 13-year-old.
He had also admitted to raping and killing three other women — Betty Askew, 50, Michelle Burns, 27, and Deborah McHenry, 41 — but charges in those deaths were dropped in the plea agreement, under which he waived his right to appeal.
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)
There shall not be found among you anyone
who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11
or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12
For all who do these things are
an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)
