Shane Schindler, 30, was sentenced in Las Vegas on Thursday for attacking the dummy in February this year. Police set the mannequin up in a vacant lot near where two homeless men had been bludgeoned to death in the months beforehand in a bid to catch their killer. As part of a plea deal with prosecutors, Schindler will not face charges for those killings. He has never admitted to either of them but confessed after his arrest that he believed the mannequin was a person when he attacked it. Surveillance footage showed him striking the dummy twice (left) in February before police swooped in on him.
