Wheatland Man Murders Family...Gets Life In Prison

Submitted By: Ryan Hillman, rhillman@k2tv.com

The Wheatland man who murdered his three young sons, along with his brother has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. The prosecution said their main goal was to make sure Everett Conant the third received life behind bars. Meanwhile, his wife Suzette, who he tried to kill on that tragic night in July of 2011, wanted the answer to just one question... she asked Everett quote, "What did we do to you? why did you kill them?" The defense on the other hand said Everett was mentally ill on the day of the murders and needed help. They pleaded that Everett is medicated now and a new person. K2's Ryan Hillman was in the courtroom today during the sentencing, and he says Everett's wife was shaking her head during the defenses arguments.  Ryan says Everett did not show any emotion, but when he walked in the room in handcuffs and shackles, he immediately looked at suzette and stared at her periodically througout the hearing. Suzette's family hugged her and they breathed a sigh of relief when Everett's life sentence was handed down today.
