Serial killer gets life term in Ohio prison death

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A man already serving a life sentence for killing three teenage girls and a Bible studies teacher in Ohio 14 years ago has received another life term for strangling a fellow inmate.

A judge in Toledo sentenced 44-year-old Lawrence Michael Hensley of Sidney on Friday on his guilty plea in the strangling of 24-year-old Brad Hamlin at the state prison in Toledo last year.

Hamlin was serving five years for burglary, breaking and entering, and theft in Portage and Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) counties in northeast Ohio.

According to The (Toledo) Blade (, the victim's mother questioned in court why the killer was locked up with non-violent criminals.

Hensley was sentenced to life in prison in 2000 after admitting that he killed four people in Shelby County, 40 miles north of Dayton.
