MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

An admitted serial killer had dozens of years tacked to 15 life sentences he is already serving, after pleading guilty to kidnapping and other charges.

Timothy Krajcir was in a McCracken County Court for an arraignment Wednesday on new sexual abuse charges that date back to 1978.

Krajcir pleaded guilty to all the charges against him and was sentenced to 65 years in prison that will be tacked on to 15 life sentences he's already serving in prison in Pontiac, Illinois.

A Grand Jury indicted Krajcir in late March. 

Krajcir's was accused of breaking into a building in January of 1978, restraining a man and then assaulting a woman.

Krajcir's admitted to killing nine women in four states, including five in southeast Missouri and one in Paducah.

Krajcir was actually the one who brought the evidence to the police in this case. He told investigators about it when he was in McCracken County court two years ago.

His arraignment, hearing and sentencing was all held back to back to back.

During court on Wednesday, Krajcir addressed the victim's son who was in the home the night his mother was attacked.

He told the son he's not the same man he was more than 30 years ago and that he was actually glad the son was in the house the night of the attack.

"I'm not the same man I was 34 years ago," Krajcir said. "I'm not saying I'm a saint now, I'm not.  I sincerely regret all the trauma and heartbreak I caused so many families, not just yours. And the man I am today, is glad you were there that night.  You were courageous and wanted to help your mother, I can understand that. I'm really glad you were there."
