Convicted Murderer Scott Roeder Gets Life Sentence
It will be 50 years before convicted murder and anti-abortion activist Scott Roeder will be eligible for parole as he faces a life sentence for killing Dr. George Tiller.
A Kansas judge handed down 50 instead of 25 years to Roeder for the 2009 fatal shooting of late-term abortion provider Dr. George Tiller, the Associated News reports.
Roeder used his sentencing as a forum to spread his religious and political beliefs to justify his crime. He shouted at the prosecutor "the blood of babies is in your hands," as he was handcuffed and led away.
