"The jurors were instructed that the sentences would be “presumed to be consecutive” unless they recommended that the terms be served simultaneously. The panel made no such recommendation. Fields’s overall sentence: life plus 419 years and $480,000 in fines." WP

Good riddance.

Looks like under section C. of the Virginia parole statute, he's eligible for parole after 25 years. https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/...ction53.1-151/

Doesn't mean he'll get it, of course....
