PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for using a claw hammer, knife and gun to kill his mother and half-brothers.
The Pensacola News Journal reports that 63-year-old Donald Hartung Sr. was sentenced Friday after after jurors didn’t unanimously recommend the death penalty.
He was convicted last week of three counts of premeditated, first-degree murder. Prosecutors say Hartung killed his relatives to get money from his mother’s will.
The defense says Hartung didn’t know about the will.
