Man In Prison Sentenced For Two Killings

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (AP) - A central Kentucky man serving 29 years for murdering a woman has been sentenced to 40 years for killing two others.

Rodney Bixler, a 39-year-old from Lawrenceburg, will serve the three sentences concurrently after being sentenced on Friday.

Anderson Circuit Judge Charles Hickman handed down a pair of 20 year sentences in the murders in 2000 of Thelma Cornett and Heather Wright.

Bixler is currently serving a 29-year sentence for the October 2000 strangling death of Daisy Whitaker, 67, a Wal-Mart cashier who was found in the bathtub of her home in Lawrenceburg.

    How can a person take a life or three in this case and not have to give a life, his own. Can't bring others back but may help someone else think before the stupids set in, and with the cost of caring for bad folks on the rise - what is cheaper, tax payers paying for a decent standard of living for a murderer or a six foot hole in the ground.

    This person doesn't need to spend time in prison. He need to be given the death penalty right away. After all, that's what he gave the people he killed. The electric chair should be real comfortable for him
