White supremacist gets life in prison after U.S. West Coast killing spree

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 12:15

David (Joey) Joseph Pedersen, 31 is shown in this undated police mug shot released to ReutersBy Teresa Carson PORTLAND Ore. (Reuters) - A white supremacist convicted of killing two people during a bloody three-state road trip on the U.S. West Coast was sentenced on Monday to two life sentences by a federal judge in Portland, Oregon, the Justice Department said. David Joseph "Joey" Pedersen, 34, was sentenced to the concurrent jail terms without the possibility of parole by U.S. District Judge Ancer Haggerty for the 2011 deaths, the Justice Department said in a statement. Pedersen is already serving life in prison in Washington state after he pleaded guilty in 2012 to first-degree murder for the shooting death of his father and the stabbing death of his stepmother in Everett, north of Seattle. Those were the first in a series of killings during a 10-day rampage by Pedersen and his girlfriend, Holly Ann Grigsby, that included robberies and carjackings before the pair were arrested in 2011 in northern California, the Justice Department said.
