A US serial killer suspected of killing a man from Somerset in 1981 has been sentenced to death by a Nevada court for his crimes.

Tracy Petrocelli, 67, killed Somerset-born Stephen Scane, whose weathered skull was found in Utah 35 years ago.

Petrocelli was convicted of two murders in 1981 but detectives believe he is responsible for killing eight people across three US states.

But Mr Scane’s case failed to make court due to a lack of evidence.

He was given the death sentence in 1985 but it was overturned two years later by an appeal court, which found his rights had been violated ahead of sentencing.

Death Sentence shows there's even more to [revenge] than your own downfall. The cycle you get into spirals out of control. Death Sentence is a laughably bad exercise in the pornography of sadism and the American appetite which voraciously consumes it.

In December 2018, at the time of Mr Scane's inquest, Summit County Police said in a statement: "Petrocelli remains suspect in the murder of Stephen Scane."

Petrocelli’s executing was re-ordered in May of this year, after rejecting the killers plea for life in prison without parole.

Mr Scane's uncle Derek, speaking from Frome, Somerset, said: "Why should he draw breath when he has committed all these crimes?

"100 per cent he should be executed, for Stephen and for the others."

Man Gets 9 Years in Prison After Nuclear Bunker Project Ends in Worker’s Fiery Death A Maryland man was sentenced Monday to nine years in prison after his secret project — the excavation of a nuclear bunker underneath his home — ended with the death of a worker he had hired to dig the tunnels. The man, Daniel L. Beckwitt, did not testify during his trial, in which he was convicted in April of second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. But he made emotional statements at his sentencing and apologized to the parents of Askia Khafra, the worker who died while digging the tunnels on Sept. 10, 2017. Mr. Khafra, 21, had been carving out hundreds of feet of passageways under Mr. Beckwitt’s home in Bethesda, Md.

An American man convicted of murder has been given the death sentence after the jury decided he would enjoy prison because he is gay. Charles Rhines was convicted in the stabbing death of a doughnut shop worker. Three jurors have since come forward to admit there was a lot of prejudice on
