Trucker who killed hitchhikers gets life sentences in plea deal

Talk about a real life nightmare & horror flick:

A serial killer who set up a torture chamber in his truck and kidnapped mostly female hitchhikers across the United States has admitted murdering a newlywed couple in Texas, according to reports.....

...In his cab was "a type of dungeon with handcuffs on the ceiling," the News reported. In 1996, the Tucson Weekly, citing officials, said it was believed that Rhoades had been killing an average of three women a month by the early 1990s...

...The paper said Rhoades, a long-haul truck driver, was the subject of the book "Roadside Prey" by Alva Busch.

Full story - and freaky mug shot - in the link.
