PHOTOS: California serial killers Wittner then dissolved into tears."As I said, in 30 years I've never had a case like this," she said."They never really recovered." Hover's stepsisters declined to appear in court.Alcala, who is already on death row in California for the murders of four women and a girl, pleaded guilty in December to the 1971 murder of Cornelia Crilley and the 1977 murder of Ellen Hover, both in New York.On Monday, New York Supreme Court Judge Bonnie Wittner handed down a sentence of 25 years to life in prison, the Wall Street Journal reported.
"This kind of case is something I've never experienced, hope to never again.
I just want to say I hope these families find some peace and solace for these inexplicably brutal and horrific acts," Wittner said, according to the Journal.
"Cornelia Always in Our Hearts," the stickers read.
Crilley's sister, Katie Stigell, spoke to the court, using most of her time talking about her sister, who "was in her prime" and "wouldn't hurt anybody." But Stigell also had words for Alcala. Alcala, I want you to know you broke my parents' hearts," Stigell said.
Her body was found in Westchester County, not far from her family's estate.
The Journal reported that many in attendance at Monday's sentencing wore stickers bearing the black-and-white photograph that initially appeared in stories about Crilley's death.
