Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson reacts to William Clyde Gibson's guilty plea

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- On Tuesday afternoon, William Clyde Gibson made an unexpected admission, and now Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson is sounding off.

During the second day of jury selection in Evansville, Ind., Gibson pleaded guilty to the murder of Stephanie Kirk. The next step will be the penalty phase in July. Henderson says he hopes Gibson gets a second death sentence.

"This was a win," said Henderson. "I think this is the way it should have been done...the family and survivors of Stephanie Kirk, they deserve -- and Miss Kirk deserves -- to seek the punishment that's equal to this crime."

Kirk's body was found buried in the backyard of Gibson's New Albany home in April 2012. Gibson has already been convicted and sentenced to death for the murder of Christine Whitis. He also pleaded guilty to killing Karen Hodella and was sentenced to 65 years.
