A court in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, on the east coast of the United States sentenced Jarrod Ramos, the murderer of five journalists, to life in prison without parole on Tuesday. The attack took place at the Capital Gazette’s editorial office in June 2018.

Judge Michael Watch, who indicted Ramos, asserted that the killer showed no remorse. Wax noted that during Ramos’ interview with a government psychiatrist, the killer admitted that he would have killed more people if he had been released early from prison.

“To say that the accused showed the hardness of his heart and a complete disregard for the sanctity of human life would be an understatement,” the judge said. After the verdict was announced, the convict refused to comment.

The Associated Press reports that the attack on the editorial office was one of the worst attacks on journalists in US history.

According to the defendants, Ramos attacked the newspaper’s editors as retaliation after it published a plea story in a case related to the harassment of an old classmate in high school in 2011. Prosecutors asserted that Ramos had been preparing for the attack long and meticulously, as well as his future imprisonment, which indicates He is fully aware of the operation that has been committed.
