The former commander of Canada's largest air force base has been sentenced to two life sentences with no possibility of parole for 25 years for murdering two women.

Ontario judge Robert F. Scott sentenced Col. Russell Williams on Thursday. He pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder, two sexual assaults and 82 counts of breaking-and-entering, during which he took hundreds of undergarments from women and young girls.

Scott sentenced Williams moments after the disgraced former elite pilot tearfully addressed the court, lamenting his crimes and the pain he has caused the victims and their family and friends.

Williams was a rising star in the military before he was charged earlier this year. The charges have shocked Canadians and shaken the military to its core.
