A 46-year-old man with "thug" and "pimpin" tattoos received a third life sentence to prison today, this time for murdering Jacqueline "Jackie" Johnson in 2012.
A jury in the 379th District Court convicted Glen Dukes on a capital murder charge. He received an automatic life sentence without the possibility of parole.
Johnson would have turned 28-years-old today.
Dukes, who is already serving two life sentences for forcibly prostituting women, placed a bag over Johnson's head and choked her. Then he set her body on fire, which a passerby noticed in a brushy area near the 100 block of Shrader Street, the district attorney's office said in a press release.
During the trial, Dukes had numerous outbursts, refused to attend his trial at times, attempted to fire his attorney and even tried to have the presiding judge removed.
Last October, Dukes was convicted of recruiting prostitutes suffering from drug addiction to come live with him. According to the DA's office, he would offer them food, shelter, drugs and a safe place if they lived with him and continued prostituting.
However, Dukes beat, raped and choked women, even threatening to kill them, if they tried to leave or didn't bring home enough money.
