Stanko sentenced to death

August 18, 2006

Convicted murderer Stephen Stanko is sentenced to die.

Last week a jury convicted Stanko of killing his girlfriend and raping a girl in the home.

Today, that jury gave him the death penalty.

Stanko was captured in Augusta after the crimes.

He was staying with a local woman who befriended him.

That woman, Dana Putnam, testified in the sentencing phase of the trial.
