David Laffer, the gunman responsible the Father’s Day pharmacy massacre, was sentenced to life in prison without parole after he pleaded guilty.
Laffer claimed to have committed the drug robbery after he lost his job and as a result of his wife’s chronic medical conditions. Laffer’s wife, Melinda Brady, who admitted to driving the getaway car, pleaded guilty to robbery charges and was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
Investigators used CCTV Services’ surveillance video to identify the remorseless gunman. The shirt that Laffer was seen wearing in the holdup was later found buried in his backyard. Investigators then found parts of the gun that was used in the slaying, along with 2,0000 hydrocodone-type pills in the couple’s home.
Laffer was sentenced to five consecutive life terms. The
deaths of the four victims in the pharmacy represent the five first-degree
counts. The other count is an umbrella charge for multiple murders.
