Sanders Admits to Raping & Killing Of Mississippi Nuns

KOSCIUSKO, MS (Ben Caxton) — 48-year old Rodney Earl Sanders admitted yesterday that he killed two Roman Catholic nuns, pleading guilty to murder in an agreement that avoided the death penalty. Sanders received two life without parole sentences plus 30 more years for burglary and car theft. In 2016 Sanders stabbed Sisters Margaret Held and Paula Merrill to death in the home they shared in Durant. He also pleaded guilty to burglarizing the house and stealing Held’s car. A motive for the crime has never been clear, but the victim’s families opposed the death penalty for Sanders because it contradicts Catholic teaching.
