Fausto Gonzalez, 37, branded a "killing machine"an "unrepentant" and "merciless" thug who sometimes killed "for no reason at all."

Fausto Gonzalez, 37, who was branded a "killing machine" by prosecutors, will have to serve the new terms consecutively, virtually ensuring he will never be freed.Remorseless biker-gang assassin who murdered six people was hit with two life sentences Friday by a Manhattan judge who called the crimes "immorality in such epic proportions.""I saw not a twinge of regret or any decent human emotion during the trial," said Supreme Court Justice Daniel FitzGerald.The judge imposed two life sentences with no possibility of parole for two of the murders and four sentences of 25 years to life for the others.He imposed separate sentences for each victim's death to recognize the value of their lives, "something that never crossed your mind," the judge told Gonzalez.Gonzalez is already serving life in prison for another gang murder in Connecticut.Assistant District Attorney Robert Walker said before sentencing that Gonzalez was an "unrepentant" and "merciless" thug who sometimes killed "for no reason at all."A defense lawyer asked for the sentences to be served concurrently. He had argued that fellow gang members were the only witnesses to the slayings and may have lied to obtain reduced prison sentences.Gonzalez started killing to punish or rob gang rivals, then moved on to thrill killings like the murder of Richard Fedor, who was shot in a robbery as he walked to the bank from his East Harlem drugstore.Gonzalez also gunned down East Village restaurateur Halil Korkmaz, also known as Alexander Pierce, because he wanted to steal his motorcycle.Not satisfied with the bloodshed, Gonzalez even ran over the body of Korkmaz, who had been waiting at a red light on E. Houston St., authorities said.John Akdikmen, a friend of Korkmaz, called Gonzalez "a coward and a lowlife" who killed "a good and decent man who never hurt anyone."Carolyn Recchio, one of the jurors who convicted Gonzalez, said justice has been served.
"I feel very happy to have been a part of this," she said.
