Ohio School Shooter Sentenced To 3 Consecutive Life Terms
CHARDON, Ohio (KDKA/AP) – The teenager who killed three students at a northeast Ohio school last year was sentenced to three consecutive life terms with no possibility of parole on Tuesday.
T.J. Lane was sentenced Tuesday in Chardon. At the proceeding, he was wearing a white T-shirt with “killer” scrawled across it in large, apparently handwritten letters.
Lane has admitted firing 10 shots last year at students at Chardon High School, east of Cleveland. He had been waiting for a bus to his alternative school.
Investigators say Lane said he didn’t know why he did it.
Killed were teenagers Russell King Jr., Daniel Parmertor and Demetrius Hewlin.
He isn’t eligible for the death penalty because he was 17 at the time of the shootings.
The charges filed against him included three counts of aggravated murder and two counts of attempted aggravated murder.
