The admitted serial killer who pleaded guilty Monday to killing four additional people after being convicted of killing a man in 1997 was sentenced to life in prison on Tuesday.

Robert Rembert will be eligible for parole after serving 30 years, according to Judge Joan Synenburg.

Rembert entered a guilty plea in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Monday on the first day of his trial for the killings of Rena Mae Payne in May of 1997, Kimberly D. Hall in June of 2015, and Morgan Nietzel and Jerry Rembert in September of 2015.

In December of 1997, Rembert was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced to six years in prison for the death of Dadren Lewis in a Cleveland parking lot.
