On March 19, 2013, Ohio teen shooter T.J. Lane was sentenced to life behind bars for the Chardon High School massacre that left three students dead and three others injured. The judge noted the sentence was due to Lane’s apparent lack of remorse for his actions, reports CBS News.
Lane, 17, allegedly opened fire around 7:30 a.m. on the morning of Feb. 27, 2012, in the school cafeteria as students were eating breakfast and studying. Witnesses told local media Lane appeared to target a specific table where a student who had begun dating his ex-girlfriend was sitting with friends.

Danny Parmertor and Demetrius Hewlin, both 16, along with Russell King Jr., 17, died from wounds sustained during the attack.
Lane, who pleaded guilty on Feb. 26 to aggravate murder and other charges, appeared in court Tuesday wearing a t-shirt with “Killer” written on it. He also prominently displayed his middle finger during the proceeding.
Danny Parmertor's mother spoke at Lane’s sentencing, saying she wants him to “suffer the rest of his life, the way" she will suffer the rest of her life without her beloved son.
Prior to the shooting, posts on Lane's Facebook page indicated he had a dark side, as he wrote in one, “Feel death, not just mocking you. Not just stalking you but inside of you... Wriggle and writhe. Feel smaller beneath my might. Seizure in the Pestilence that is my scythe. Die, all of you.”
CBS reports Lane could not have been sentenced to death because he was just 17 at the time of the killings.
