The East Jakarta District Court sentenced Baekuni, 49, to life in prison on Wednesday after he was convicted of sexual abuse and the premeditated murder of four street children.

Prosecutors previously asked the court to sentence Baekuni to death.

After the police arrested Baekuni on Jan. 8, he confessed to sodomizing, killing and mutilating several boys between the ages of 10 and 12.

Baekuni claims he killed 14 street children.
