School shooter sentenced to life in prison

Posted: Updated:

CHARDON, Ohio - TJ Lane, who killed three students at Chardon High School last year, was given three life sentences in prison without parole Tuesday morning.

Lane pleaded guilty to aggravated murder Feb. 26, almost a year-to-the-date after the shooting.

He is not eligible for the death penalty because he was 17 years-old at the time he killed Russell King Jr., Daniel Parmertor and Demetrius Hewlin and wounded three other students.

Lane sat in court and later unbuttoned his dress shirt exposing that he was aslo wearing a white shirt with the word "Killer" written in what appears to be marker across the front.

Lane also used innapropriate hand gestures and raised his middle finger to the families of the victims.

He opted, against his counsel's wishes, not to have anyone speak on his behalf during the trial.

Family and friends of the victims spoke during the trial.
