Jack in the Box Meal, Life Sentence in Prison

FRESNO, Calif. A judge sentenced Kenneth Wilson to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Wilson pleaded guilty to murdering Julian Barajas in April 2008. Investigators say Wilson shot and killed the man execution style.

The case abruptly settled when Wilson asked for a private meeting with his family. The prosecutor said tax payers were spared a lot of money.

His defense attorney describes another unusual request Wilson made before agreeing to the plea deal.

Defense Attorney Jim Lambe said, "That was Jack in the Box food, so that was his last meal from the outside world. That's what he wanted."

Prosecutor Burton Francis said, "This provides a finality and it is the greatest punishment we can impose. He plead guilty to a special circumstance. He is going to spend the rest of his life in prison without any possibility of parole."

Wilson said nothing at his sentencing.
