For the crime, he was awarded death penalty in 2000 and was eventually executed in April 2014. He was also convicted for the murder of Stephanie Mahaney in 1997, for which he had received a life sentence in 2003. He had previously served years in jail for raping and stabbing a 19-year-old woman in 1992. Despite his claims, the state's attorney in Jefferson County, Illinois did not charge him with the Dardeen family homicides in 1987 due to inconsistencies in his account.
