Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols has been sentenced to life in prison -- again.

A state judge today ordered a life sentence on each of 161 murder charges -- to be served consecutively.

The sentence was set after a jury couldn't agree on a death sentence. The jury convicted him of 161 first-degree murder charges in the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.

In a lengthy written statement submitted today, Nichols prayed "for everyone to acknowledge God." He also asked for forgiveness and offered his help in the healing process.

But the judge called Nichols a terrorist and said he's only at the beginning of atoning for his crime.

Nichols was already serving life on a federal conviction.
