Quadruple murder suspect given 4 life sentences

Posted at 12:52 PM, Apr 22, 2016

INDIANAPOLIS -- Kenneth Rackemann was formally sentenced Friday to four life sentences, plus 20 years, for a 2014 quadruple murder.

Rackemann pleaded guilty in February to the 2014 murders of Walter Burnell, Jacob Rodemich, Kristy Sanchez and Hayley Navarro.

Rackemann is one of four people believed to have conspired to rob Burnell, but the four people were killed during the robbery.

Prosecutors agreed to the sentence with Rackemann to take the death penalty off the table. He's previously backed out of a similar plea deal offered by prosecutors in December 2014.
