T.J. Lane - an 18-year old who pleaded guilty last month to killing three students in an Ohio State cafeteria in February 12 - was sentenced to consecutive life terms in prison today.
And he drew attention to himself throughout the hearing by smiling, cursing... and donning a "Killer" T-shirt.
Lane pointed his middle finger at the victims' relatives at one point, while Dina Parmertor, whose son Daniel died in Lane's attack, referred to the culprit "a pathetic excuse for a human being" and wished upon him "an extremely, slow torturous death."
Lane smiled as Dina spoke.
Prosecutors say the teenager used a .22-caliber pistol to fire 10 shots at a group of students in his school's cafeteria. Those fatally wounded included Daniel Parmertor and Demetrius Hewlin, both 16, and Russell King Jr., 17.
A few months ago, Lane was ruled mentally competent to stand trial.
In addition to three life sentences with no chance of parole, Judge David Fuhry also handed out sentences totaling 37 more years for attempted murder and felonious assault and using a weapon in Lane's crimes.
