    Craigslist killer Richard Beasley has been sentenced to death, Thursday, for the murder of three men in southeast Ohio. The 53-year-old was convicted of joining forces with a teenager in 2011 in a twisted plot to lure victims with a fake Craigslist ad for farmhand jobs. Beasley's partner in crime, Brogan Rafferty, will not be joining him on death row. Sixteen years old at the time of conviction, Rafferty was too young to receive the death penalty and instead will spend his life in prison without the possibility of parole.
