The former police officer convicted of murdering a woman and their unborn child was in court for sentencing on Monday afternoon.
Ex-Buena Vista Township police officer Ken Bluew received a mandatory life sentence without the possibility of parole.
Bluew was convicted last month in the murder of Jenny Webb. Prosecutors said Bluew killed Jenny Webb near a Buena Vista Township gun range. Prosecutors said Bluew allegedly didn't want to pay child support, didn't want his wife to know about the situation and didn't want a baby.
Bluew walked into a packed courtroom Monday afternoon with at least 10 uniformed Sheriff's deputies in attendance. The judge asked Bluew is there was anything he wanted to say, to which Bluew replied, "no sir." In court, Jenny Webb's mother Dawn called Bluew an "evil monster."
After Webb's mother was done speaking, the judge pronounced Bluew's sentence: mandatory life in prison without parole.
