Three life sentences for ‘Kensington Strangler’ Antonio Rodriguez

    Antonio Rodriguez, the man charged with killing three prostitutes and earning himself the “Kensington Strangler” nickname, has been found guilty of the killings and sentenced to three consecutive life terms in prison.

    Kensington was on high alert in late 2010 as women’s bodies began turning up. He was arrested in January 2011 when authorities were able to link his DNA sample with one in Pennsylvania’s convicted felon database.

    Rodriguez had a nonjury trial.
