The teen who shot three students to death at Chardon High School last year has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.
According to Cleveland NBC-affiliate WKYC, a judge handed down three life sentences to 18-year-old TJ Lane on each of the three aggravated murder charges.
Lane wore a shirt to his sentencing on Tuesday morning that appeared to have the word "killer" written on the front with a marker. WKYC reports that Lane flipped off the courtroom and used profane language toward others, including the victims' families.
The teen requested that his defense team not speak on his behalf during the sentencing. He was not subject to the death penalty because he was 17 at the time of the crimes, according to the Associated Press.
