Four-time killer gets more sentences in western Michigan

A four-time killer already serving life in prison has been sentenced in the deaths of his wife and mother-in-law in western Michigan in 1989.

Leon Means was sentenced to at least 20 years in prison Monday for the fatal stabbings of Cynthia Herrera Means and her mother, Linda Herrera.

The 62-year-old Means pleaded no contest.

He's already serving a life sentence after pleading no contest to killing Anna Lawson and Judy Bushman 13 months ago in Muskegon Heights.

Before getting his latest sentence, Means listened to relatives of the 1989 victims.

Celestino Herrera, who lost a sister and mother, said: "You left me with nothing."

The Muskegon Chronicle says Means didn't speak. Judge Timothy Hicks says he's filled with "unspeakable evil."
