Former Power Rangers Star Sentenced to DeathFriday, April 10, 2009 1:01 PM
Former Mighty Morphin Power Rangers star Skylar Deleon was sentenced to death today in California, the AP reports.
Deleon, 29, is charged with murdering an Arizona couple in 2004 by tying them to an anchor and throwing them overboard their yacht into the Pacific Ocean off Southern California.
Prosecutors say he and his then-wife Jennifer Henderson gained access to the boat by feigning interest in buying it.
After the grisly murders, they scrubbed the boat clean with bleach wipes. The bodies of Tom and Jackie Hawks of Prescott were never found.
Henderson was sentenced in 2006 to two terms of life in prison without parole for her role in the murders.
Deleon was also convicted of killing a man he met on a work furlough program in 2003. His attorneys admitted he’d committed the crime, but argued Deleon was predisposed to violence because he was raised by his drug-dealer father after his mother abandoned him.
