LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A man who admitted to killing three people in Lexington now knows how long he'll spend behind bars.
On Friday, a judge sentenced William Blancet, Sr. to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
“Nothing makes it right. But, you know, at least we don’t have to go through this again,” says Christine Jones, wife and mother of victims'.
“We can still see the family that we have. He can’t,” says Doug Comley, victim's brother.
Blancet pleaded guilty to killing Donald Adams Sr., Donald Adams Jr., and Ronnie Sparks, Jr. in January 2011. All three were shot to death inside of a home on Shaker Run Road.
Police say the crime was drug related.
Although Blancet was expected to receive life in prison without the possibility of parole as a part of his plea agreement, families of his victims weren't exactly pleased.
"I don't agree with it, but whatever happens, it's not going to bring my brother back," says Comley.
"You know, nothing will give us the justice that we feel we need, but this is pretty close. I mean, we know he won't walk the streets again. He will be in prison for the rest of his life, and eventually, he will lose his family just like he took our family from us," says Jones.
In addition to those three life sentences for murder, Blancet was also given the maximum sentence for first degree robbery and possession of a controlled substance, among other charges. Blancet will not be eligible for parole.
