CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape High Court says serial killer Cameron Wilson has shown no remorse or empathy.

The 20-year-old was on Thursday handed four life sentences plus an additional 71 years.

He was convicted of five murders, attempted murders, rape and assault.

Wilson was arrested in September for stabbing 18-year-old Lekita Moore 98 times and leaving her naked body on a field in Valhalla Park.

Judge Chantal Fortuin says the murder shocked the court and the entire Western Cape.

"The attack on Lekita Moore shocked the court and the Western Cape. It is clear that this young lady challenged your need to control women by daring to attend the karaoke without your permission."

Fortuin says determining an appropriate sentence for the 20-year-old was difficult, given his young age.

She lauded the bravery of several witnesses, who came to testify, despite their visible fear.

During sentencing, Wilson rolled his eyes and could be seen smiling at times.
