MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee man has been sentenced to 205 years in prison for fatally shooting five members of his family.
Before receiving his sentence Tuesday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court, Christopher Stokes told the judge that he wasn’t asking for leniency and that he deserved to be locked up.
The 44-year-old Stokes said he couldn’t explain why he killed his family members and that he must have a lot of hate.
Killed in the shooting were 41-year-old Teresa Thomas and her two children, 16-year-old Tiera Agee and 14-year-old Demetrius Thomas.
Two other teens related to Stokes were also killed, 19-year-old Marcus Stokes and 17-year-old Lakeitha Stokes.
