Chardon High School shooter shows no remorse at sentencing
Judge orders T.J. Lane to spend the rest of his life in prison
by WKSU's M.L. SCHULTZE

In The Region:
The now 18-year-old who shot three students to death in the Chardon High School cafeteria last year will spend the rest of his life in prison.

T.J. Lane wore a white T-shirt with the word “killer” scrawled across it into court, and gave a short, largely unintelligible statement that included  cursing the victims’ families and lifting his middle finger to them.

Geauga County Judge David Fuhry noted Lane’s lack of remorse in sentencing to him to life in prison without a chance for parole. He also noted the planning that went into the shooting, including stealing the guns Lane used to open fire on Feb. 27, 2012.

“He intentionally dressed the part in the shirt with the killer label prominently printed across the chest. Loaded the gun the night before the shooting, took it together with a spare fully loaded magazine and a knife for backup.  … These juveniles were ambushed. This was not an impulsive course of conduct. It was the studied effort of somebody bent on killing.”

Lane killed 16-year-olds Daniel Parmertor and Demetrius Hewlin and 17-year-old Russell King Jr. He also wounded three other students, paralyzing one of them, Nick Walczak. Against the advice of his lawyers, Lane pleaded guilty to all the charges last month.
