DARLINGTON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin father accused of killing his three sons in a house fire has been sentenced to three consecutive life sentences.
Thirty-three-year-old Armin Wand of Argyle was sentenced Wednesday. His sentence carries no chance of parole.
Authorities say Wand set his house on fire in September in hopes of killing his family and collecting insurance money. Seven-year-old Allen, 5-year-old Jeffery and 3-year-old Joseph died in the fire. Sharon Wand and the couple’s 2-year-old daughter escaped the fire. The mother later suffered a miscarriage.
The State Journal reports the judge gave Wand the maximum sentence on each count he faced, including 40 years on an arson charge, 60 years on an attempted homicide charge and 40 years for felony murder for the death of the fetus his wife was carrying.
