CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Samuel Little, one of America’s most vicious serial killers, pleaded guilty Friday to murder charges that date back 30 years.
He entered the pleas via video conference in a Cuyahoga County court, and will serve two life sentences.
In May, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley announced that a grand jury had returned an indictment against Little, 79, for murdering two Cleveland women in 1984 and 1991.
Special Investigation Division Chief in the Cuyahoga County Prosecutors Office Richard Bell said, “These are heinous acts, he has such a disregard for human life, specifically women, there’s a lot of hatred toward women.”
Little, who grew up in Lorain, is charged with four counts of aggravated murder and six counts of kidnapping, according to a press release issued by O’Malley’s office.
Little has confessed to killing 93 women across the country, and more than half of which have been confirmed. His killing spree spans 35 years, and extends to a dozen states.
The Lorain killer also pleaded guilty on Friday to two women’s slayings in Cincinnati.
