Gibson sentenced to 65 years after pleading guilty to Hodella murder
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The southern Indiana man convicted of killing and dismembering an elderly woman pleaded guilty to a second murder on Thursday.
William Clyde Gibson was found guilty of the murder of Christine Whitis and sentenced to death.
On Thursday morning, Gibson pleaded guilty to the 2002 murder of 45-year-old Karen Hodella. In return, he received a 65-year prison sentence.
Gibson was transferred back to Floyd County from the State Department of Corrections for the plea deal hearing.
WDRB's Emily Mieure says Gibson appeared in court with a new tattoo. It read, "Death row X3."
Gibson still faces a third murder charge. He is scheduled to go to trial for the murder of 35-year-old Stephanie Kirk of Charlestown, Ind. on June 2. That trial is set to happen in Vanderburgh County.
