MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Convicted killer and former Mount Pleasant pastor John White faced a judge Thursday afternoon after pleading guilty last month to a second murder.
White was sentenced Thursday to a minimum of 56 years and 3 months up to 85 years for the murder of 24-year-old Rebekah Gay.
Police say White killed Gay on Halloween last year, then dumped her body in a ditch in Mount Pleasant.
In 1995, White was also convicted of killing 26-year-old Vicki Wall.
Her body was discovered in a wooded area, about 2 miles away from a Comstock grocery store.
