EAST ST. LOUIS, Illinois -- A one-time killer from Oklahoma has been ordered to spend nearly a quarter century in prison in the kidnapping of two southwestern Illinois women during a failed check-cashing scheme.

Fifty-two-year-old Carey Breshers was sentenced in East St. Louis to 24 years and five months. He'd pleaded guilty to kidnapping and weapons charges. The prison term will run consecutive to one in Kansas.

Authorities in Illinois say Breshers abducted two women at gunpoint from an O'Fallon loan store and had them try to cash a check for him before he took $1,100 from their business. He later let them go in St. Louis.

Breshers also is suspected of a crime spree in the Oklahoma City area, including the kidnapping and sexual assault of an Oklahoma City woman.
