(KMOV)--A St. Louis man was sentenced on Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole and an additional 150 years, for the rape and murder of a teenage girl, and assaulting a pregnant woman causing her to lose the child.

Brandon McGuire, 28, was sentence by St. Louis Circuit Judge Donald McCullin after a jury found him guilty.

The jury found McGuire guilty of first-degree murder, forcible rape and forcible sodomy in the death of 16 year old Keyandra Jackson. Additionally he was found guilty of second-degree murder in the death of the unborn child, forcible sodomy, first-degree assault and kidnapping.

He was found not guilty of forcible rape in the assault of the second woman.

McGuire admitted to having sexual contact with both victims but denied killing them.

McGuire stated he had no knowledge of how Jackson wound up dead in a trash bin or how the other woman, 41, was found bleeding on the side of a north St. Louis street.

McGuire had been charged in connection to a rape in September of 2006, but those charges were dropped since the trial.

Officials stated that McGuire’s DNA also matches evidence from a fourth attack of a woman in Richmond Heights, but has not been charged. That rape occurred in March of 2006.
