Antonio Rodriguez dubbed the 'Kensington strangler' gets three life sentences for killing three women

A man dubbed the 'Kensington strangler' will serve three life sentences after being convicted of raping and killing three women.

Antonio Rodriguez, 23, who has a history of mental illness, strangled three prostitutes during sex in what a judge described as 'a horrific case'.

The spate of grisly murders gripped Kensington, Philadelphia, U.S. in late 2010.

'This is just a horrific case,' Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey Minehart said after finding Rodriguez guilty of three counts of first degree murder.

'You not only violated these young women while they were living, but you violated them when they were dead.'

Rodriguez killed Elaine Goldberg, 21, Casey Mahoney, 27 and Nicole Piacentini, 35, during November and December 2010.

The killer said in statements following his arrest in January 2011 that he had met his victims, who were working as prostitutes, while walking the streets of Kensington. He had sex with them in secluded areas where the murders took place. Read More
