Cass County Judge William Collins sentenced Yust to 15 years in prison and life in prison for the deaths of Kara Kopetsky and Jessica Runions.

Yust was sentenced Monday afternoon at the Cass County Courthouse for the deaths of Kopetsky and Runions — two women who disappeared about a decade apart. Their remains were found together in the same wooded area of Cass County in 2017.

A jury found Yust guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the death of Kopetsky and second-degree murder in the death of Runions in April.

At that time, jurors recommended the maximum sentence for both convictions — 15 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter and life in prison, which is capped at 30 years in Missouri, for the second-degree murder conviction.

Judge Collins said Yust will serve 15 years in prison for the death of Kopetsky and life in prison for the death of Runions.

Collins said the sentences will be served consecutively, or back to back, which means Yust will serve 45 years in prison for the murders.

Along with the transfer, a new mugshot of Yust was made available.
