Timothy Krajcir, a 63-year-old convicted sex offender, now has another 40 years tacked on to previous sentences after he pleaded guilty last week to the 1978 murder of Virginia Lee Witte. Her stabbing and strangulation was one of several murders Krajcir has confessed he committed during a brief stint out of prison in the last 1970s and early 1980s.

In a videotaped confession, Krajcir admitted that he followed Witte home, sexually assaulted her and choked her four or five minutes. He was not certain she was dead, so he also stabbed her. He had picked Witte as a victim as they were both driving down a Marion, Illinois street.

His 40-year sentence will be served consecutively to another 40-year sentence he was given in the 1982 death of Southern Illinois University student Deborah Sheppard.

Krajcir confessed to the murders of nine women in four states in exchange for not facing the death penalty. After his confession, investigators were able to link Krajcir's DNA to most of the crimes.
