Man Gets Two Life Prison Terms for Killing Two Women in 1980s


A man described by a prosecutor as a sexually motivated serial killer was sentenced Monday to two consecutive life terms without the possibility of parole for murdering two women in the 1980s, including one in Burbank.

Jurors deliberated about three hours before convicting Horace Van Vaultz Jr., now 67, of two counts of first-degree murder for the July 16, 1981, strangulation of Selena Keough — a 21-year-old mother who was killed in San Bernardino County and dumped under bushes in Montclair — and the June 9, 1986, asphyxiation of Mary Duggan, a 22-year-old Reseda resident whose body was found in the trunk of her car in an empty parking lot in Burbank.

The nine-man, three-woman panel also found true the special-circumstance allegations of multiple murders, murder during a rape involving both women and murder during sodomy involving Keough.
