Federal officials have decided not to pursue a death penalty case against David Renz for last year's murder of a woman and rape of a child. Renz pled guilty to killing Lori Bresnahan and assaulting the young girl.
David Renz was in Syracuse Federal court for sentencing Wednesday for crimes he committed before he murdered a woman and raped a 10-year-old girl. The prison terms for all the crimes combined will likely keep him behind bars for the rest of his life. David Renz was sentenced on one count of receiving child pornography and five counts of possessing it. Judge Norman Mordue issued a 20 year sentence for receiving to run before concurrent 10-year terms for possession. He pleaded guilty to the charges last year.
Convicted murderer and rapist David Renz pleaded guilty today to six different child pornography charges. These are the crimes for which he was accused - and under house arrest - when he killed Lori Bresnahan and reaped a 10-year-old child.
