Texas Trucker Pleads Guilty to 2 More Murders

HOUSTON (AP) - A Texas trucker who kept a torture dungeon in the cab of his long-haul rig has avoided the death penalty by accepting life prison sentences for murdering a hitchhiking couple two decades ago.

Robert Ben Rhoades, who already is serving a life sentence for killing a 14-year-old girl in Illinois, pleaded guilty to two counts of capital murder when he appeared before a West Texas judge this week. He has no chance of parole.

This guy just needed to be put to death. He is a waste of money space and even air sitting in jail. Something is very wrong with our system.
