Serial Killer May Stand Trial in Paducah

Paducah, KY – Convicted serial killer Timothy Krajcir may be extradited to Paducah to stand trial for a slaying over 30 years ago. 65-year-old Krajcir was indicted two years ago by a McCracken grand jury for the kidnapping and murder of Joyce Tharp in 1979. He's currently serving two 40-year sentences in Illinois after being convicted of at least seven murders and confessing to two others, including Tharp's. The Paducah Sun reports a warrant was served yesterday seeking Krajcir's extradition.
