Stangel sentenced to 3 consecutive life terms
Updated On: Aug 14 2013 11:30:13 AM HST
A judge says a man who turned Honolulu highways into "literal killing zones" should spend the rest of his life in prison.
In May, jurors convicted Toby Stangel, 30, of second-degree murder and second-degree attempted murder for the 2011 shooting that killed a mother and wounded two others.
Each life term carries a 20-year minimum sentence. The parole board will set the exact term.
Stangel's defense attorney John Schum says his client heard voices that told him to "kill or be killed" on June 3, 2011, when he went on the shooting rampage.
Judge Glenn Kim says drug abuse and "twisted thinking" led to a "killing rampage."
Stangel and his parents apologized to 54-year-old Tammy Nguyen's family. Her family declined comment.
