Scott Dekraai

 

SANTA ANA - The man who murdered 8 people at a Seal Beach hair salon 6 years ago was sentenced to 8 consecutive life terms without the possibility of parole, along with 7 years to life plus 200 additional years.  Scott Dekraai, 47, killed his ex-wife and 7 others in October 2011 at the Salon Meritage where she worked.  Dekraai pleaded guilty in 2014, but his case has dragged on for years due to a scandal over the sheriff's department's use of informants in the Orange County jail system. That prompted a judge to remove the possibility of the death penalty in the case.  (KABC)
