A serial killer and rapist who has allegedly brutally assaulted and murdered at least three women has been sentenced on Wednesday, Oct. 6, to 160 years in prison after overwhelming evidence and witness testimony found him guilty of the heinous crimes.

Khalil Wheeler-Weaver, a 25-year-old man who killed three women he met through online social media and dating sites, reportedly continued to say that he was framed, in spite of incriminating Google searches, DNA evidence from one victim, and testimony from his fourth victim who survived the ordeal, according to Law&Order.

“The defendant believed these victims were disposable,” Essex County prosecutor Adam Wells said. “They were killed and then he went on about his day as if nothing had happened. But each of these women’s lives mattered.”

Robin West, Joanne Brown, and Sarah Butler were the three victims he killed in 2016 largely through strangulation. West’s body was found burned in an abandoned house, while Butler was reportedly solicited by Wheeler-Weaver to have sex.

Tiffany Taylor, the fourth victim who escaped from death by scaring him with a reminder of jail, provided testimony that she was kidnapped and sexually assaulted by Wheeler-Weaver, confirming his identity to the court, according to NBC News.

“My whole life is different; I don’t wear makeup anymore; I don’t have friends. I’m always paranoid. But I’m happy to still be here,” Taylor said. “I hope you don’t show him any remorse, because he’s not showing any remorse.”

The parents of the victims also showed up to ask the judge to give Wheeler-Weaver a harsh sentence for his crimes.

“She had a whole entire life before her demise. Hundreds of people were affected by her life and were saddened by her death,” Anita Mason, mother of Robin West, said.

“I hope you suffer, boy, every night,” Victor Butler, father of Sarah Butler, said.

Wheeler-Weaver continues to claim that he is innocent and that he was framed for the rape and murders of the women, according to North Jersey.

“I do feel sympathy for the victims. My heart goes out to their family and friends. However, I was not the person who committed these crimes,” he said in court today.

Wheeler-Weaver will be qualified for parole in 140 years’ time.
