Suffolk serial killer re-sentenced to life without parole

A convicted murderer originally sentenced to death was re-sentenced Thursday in Riverhead to life without parole.

Fifty-one-year-old Robert Shulman, of Hicksville, was convicted in 1999 by a Suffolk County jury of first-degree murder in the deaths of three women. The change in his sentence was the result of a decision last year by the state Court of Appeals that placed a moratorium on executions in New York.

Shulman was convicted of killing 28-year-old Kelly Sue Bunting in Melville, Lisa Ann Warner, whose body was found at a Brooklyn recycling plant and an unidentified woman whose body was found in Medford. Those murders occurred between 1994 and 1995. Shulman also admitted to killing two other women and dumping their bodies in Westchester.
