CHARDON, OH (AP) -- The teenager who killed three students at Chardon High School last year has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Lane's attorney Ian Friedman told the court during a sentencing hearing that Lane did not wish his defense team to present any witnesses, statements or other evidence to mitigate his sentence.

When Lane addressed the court he reported made a vulgur gesture and used profane language toward those in the courtroom including the victims' families.

Lane's guilty plea on Feb. 26 came on the eve of the anniversary of the attacks. Three students were killed and three were wounded, two seriously.

Lane wasn't subject to the death penalty because he was 17 at the time of the crimes.
