Weinberger is serving a 10-year federal prison term in Alabama for an online child pornography conviction in Sacramento. He eventually will return to California to serve the rest of his life in prison for the murder.
He kidnapped Courtney Sconce after school on Nov. 8, 2000, as she walked to a neighborhood market in Rancho Cordova. Angry because FBI agents had been to his El Dorado County home a day or two earlier investigating the child-pornography case, Weinberger took LSD and began cruising for a girl to abduct, he later told officials.
Shortly after 2 p.m. that day, he spotted Courtney.
Her body was found hours later on the sandy banks of the Feather River in Sutter County. She had been raped and then strangled to death. A passer-by had startled Weinberger and he had fled, leaving behind a pair of boxer shorts with his DNA, and a distinctive baseball cap.
For months, investigators tried to find Courtney's killer, eventually focusing on Weinberger, a construction company clerk who was 18 at the time of the murder.
