Victims’ families content with life sentence in Casey’s Nickelodeon murders

The third victim, Sharon Anderson, is survived by her younger sister, Deborah Bowie, who did not attend most of the trial because she had sat through the grisly details four times before. Ibar and his one-time co-defendant Seth Penalver had originally been tried in 1998, resulting in a hung jury. Penalver was tried separately in 1999, convicted and sentenced to death. Ibar’s first retrial followed in 2000, also resulting in a conviction and death sentence.
