TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The drifter convicted of killing and beheading a Florida woman has been sentenced to death.
Gary Michael Hilton was sentenced on Thursday morning.
He was convicted in February of the death of 46-year-old Cheryl Dunlap.
A jury unanimously recommended a death sentence for the Crawfordville woman's murder.
Dunlap - a nurse and Sunday school teacher - was found dead in
north Florida's Apalachicola National Forest.
Hilton already has been sentenced to life in prison in Georgia after pleading guilty to killing 24-year-old hiker Meredith Emerson.
The headless bodies of both victims were found in wooded
areas where Hilton had camped in Georgia and Florida.
He still is a suspect in three other killings in Florida and North Carolina.
