A Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his
parents and brother because prosecutors say he was angry they cut off
his relationship with a model he met on an adult website.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that the 12 jurors didn’t unanimously
choose the death penalty for Grant Amato on Monday, meaning an automatic
life sentence. The same panel previously found Amato guilty of three
counts of first-degree murder in the January slayings.
Seminole County deputies say Amato had stolen $60,000 and guns from his
brother to talk to a Bulgarian woman he met online. Investigators say
Grant also stole $150,000 from his father, including a loan taken out on
his parents’ house.
