CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WKBW) - A Cheektowaga man who admitted to multiple crimes against women will face 18 years behind bars.

Antoine Gardner pleaded guilty in Erie County Court early last month to raping a 16-year-old girl and breaking into another woman's home at gunpoint.

Both incidents occurred between 2008 and 2011.

Garner was recently convicted of strangling a third woman. He is also believed to be the last person to see Amanda Wienckowski alive before her naked body was found in a garbage tote in Buffalo back in 2009.
