Md. rapist pleads guilty in 2008 death of woman found in Frederick

A convicted rapist has pleaded guilty in Frederick to murdering a Baltimore woman and leaving her body in a parked vehicle in 2008.

Thirty-five-year-old Ronnie Winkler of Baltimore pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Thursday. He faces up to 30 years in prison at his sentencing July 13.

The partially clothed body of 19-year-old Shneara Boone was found asphyxiated in her sport-utility vehicle in Frederick in September 2008. Prosecutors say she was the girlfriend of Winkler's nephew.

Winkler still faces trial in Baltimore on charges he murdered another woman and raped a woman and a 16-year-old girl in separate attacks in August 2008.

He served a prison term for the 1994 rape of a 13-year-old girl.

Gotta wonder how many people he's already raped in prison...and will.

Death penalty, anyone?

Why is this man running around loose killing and raping other people? Put him back in prison and throw away the key.

Why has this serial rapist been allowed to run loose without first undergoing castration?

glad they're letting him plea bargain. can they let him out on bail? he hasn't caused enough misery or raped enough women and children. plea bargains should be used when there is not enough evidence to convict and in no other instance. gee, I wonder why so many convicts commit subsequent crimes?
and to the poster who asked how many he's raped in prison, in MD prisons the convicts don't let rapists walk the halls in general population. they have to be segregated in protective custody, or someone who's never getting out and has been locked up for 37 years and who's bored will cut their heads off.
