Man Gets 40-Year Sentence In 2nd Body In Car Case
ANOKA, Minn. (AP) - A 25-year-old man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for a second grisly killing of a young woman.
Alberto Palmer will serve at least two-thirds of the sentence imposed Friday by Anoka County Court for the 2013 death of 18-year-old Brittany Clardy.
That's in addition to the minimum of 30 years of a life sentence he'll serve for killing Klaressa Cook, 24.
Reports say that both sentences are part of a plea agreement Palmer made this summer.
The sentences are consecutive, not concurrent.
Clardy's body was found stuffed in a car in a Columbia Heights impound lot in February 2013.
Three months later, Cook's body was discovered in a car at a Minneapolis lot.
Palmer also was wanted for three attacks on escorts in Georgia.
