MILWAUKEE — A
Milwaukee County judge decided that a 27-year-old man will spend
the rest of his life in prison for orchestrating killings in a
witness intimidation case.
Danta Rowsey was
sentenced Friday to two consecutive life terms without parole,
plus 35 years, after he was convicted of three murders and
Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/2a85l58
) that Judge Thomas McAdams called the crimes "heinous and
infamous" and said Rowsey was a sociopath. McAdams said this
case called for no release.
A jury found that
Rowsey was behind the killings of his criminal cohorts so they
wouldn't turn on him. Several of Rowsey's family members spoke on
his behalf at his sentencing hearing. They said he was innocent.
