MARIANNA, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Panhandle man has been sentenced to four life terms after being convicted of murdering a 19-year-old Marianna woman and her three children.
Wesley Williams was sentenced Friday morning in the March 2005 slayings of Danielle Baker and her three sons, ages 3 weeks to 3 years. Williams was the father of two of the boys.
Baker was found shot to death in her Cottondale Village apartment. Her children had suffocated after being bound with duct tape.
Williams was convicted of four counts of first-degree murder and three counts of aggravated child abuse in October. A judge threw out the possibility of a death sentence earlier this month.
Williams was also sentenced to three 30-year terms for child abuse.
