Ohio man gets 3 life sentences for 2016 slayings

November 30, 2017 - 6:16 AM

RAVENNA, Ohio - A 26-year-old man spit on a courtroom floor in northeast Ohio and declined to give a statement after being sentenced to three life sentences in prison in the deaths of a man, the man's girlfriend, and the girlfriend's unborn child.

The Record-Courier reports that attorneys for David Calhoun had little to say in Calhoun's defence during a sentencing hearing in Portage County on Wednesday. Calhoun pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated murder earlier this month in a plea deal to avoid a death sentence.

Prosecutors say Calhoun killed 33-year-old Le'Shaun Sanders, 32-year-old Sara Marsh and her unborn child outside a Ravenna Township home in November 2016. Authorities said Marsh was between eight and 10 months pregnant at the time.

Authorities say Calhoun had a dispute with Sanders.
