LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - A Lake Charles man, convicted last week in the killing of three men in McMillan Park, has been sentenced to three consecutive life sentences, plus 150 years.
Prosecutors say Armonta Hadnot and another gunman approached six men playing dice in the park on March 20, 2013 to rob them. They then opened fire, killing Jeminskian Arvie, David Galmore and Fitzgerald Guillory.
The three surviving witnesses were able to identify Hadnot, but not the other robber.
The American Press reports (http://bit.ly/1eOXZNb ) a jury found Hadnot guilty last week on three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder.
Judge Clayton Davis told Hadnot Tuesday that he handed down a heavy sentence because of the powerlessness of the victims and because of Hadnot's "failure to identify" the other gunman.
