Kenneth Eugene Billups, considered one of Jefferson County's most notorious killers, has been given another death sentence in a separate murder case.
Billups was sentenced to die by lethal injection today following his conviction for the December 2003 murder of Steven Lockett. His body was left in a burning truck.
It's the 5th murder conviction for Billips, who is already on death row in Holman Prison for four drug-related killings in Center Point. Those murders occurred 3 days after Lockett was slain. Prosecutors said the victims, all Hispanic males, were lured to an apartment for a drug deal and each were shot in the back in the head.
