WHEATLAND (AP) – A Wyoming man who killed his three young sons and brother and wounded his wife in a shooting rampage two years ago was sentenced to five consecutive life sentences four of them without possibility of parole Tuesday.

District Judge John Brooks denied a request from lawyers for 37 year old Everett Conant III, 37, to give him a single life sentence with the possibility of parole on the grounds that he was mentally ill at the time of the shootings.

Conant pleaded no contest in June to four counts of first-degree murder in the July 2011 shooting. Conant’s sons Joseph, 11, Charles, 13, and Everett, 18  and Conant’s brother,  Nacuma Roland Conant, 33, were all shot and killed at the family’s mobile home. Conant also pleaded no contest to one count of attempted first-degree murder in the shooting of his then-wife, Suzette Conant, who was shot and wounded but who escaped from the mobile home.
