Man gets life in 'Curious George' killing

A man pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison for killing Alan Shalleck, who collaborated with the co-creator of "Curious George" to bring the mischievous monkey to TV and a series of book sequels.


Victim Alan Shalleck co-wrote many Curious George books and directed cartoon shorts.

As part of a plea deal, Rex Ditto, 31, pleaded guilty Thursday to first-degree murder and robbery with a weapon. He is not eligible for parole.

"You will die in a prison cell," Circuit Judge Edward Garrison told Ditto.

With a name like "Rex Ditto" (King of the Repeated) it would appear he will serve TWO life sentences.
