Erie man gets life sentence for slaying of elderly woman
A 23-year-old Erie man was sentenced today to life in prison with no chance of parole for killing an 86-year-old woman during a burglary and robbery in September 2008.
Willie R. Baker received the sentence from Erie County Judge John J. Trucilla immediately after Baker pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, or a murder committed during a felony, such as robbery. Second-degree murder carried a mandatory sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole.
In return for the plea, the District Attorney's Office dropped the pursuit of a first-degree murder conviction and the death penalty against Baker.
Baker admitted to fatally stabbing Anne Ropelewski after breaking into her house on Lynn Street on Sept. 13, 2008. The defense maintained Baker is mentally disabled.

The death penalty would have been too good for him.
Waking up in a prison cell every day and realizing this is as good as it's ever going to be is a just punishment

Why should we have to pay to house and feed animals like this. They should have hung his AZZ up in Perry Square for all the rest of the pigs in this cesspool we call a city to see.

This waste of life will live better the the working poor.
