DARLINGTON - Armin Wand III is sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole for the deaths of his three young sons, following an emotional hearing during which his wife told him he'd be "locked up in a cage like the animal you are." Wand, 33, slouched and hung his head for most of the hearing Wednesday, April 17, before a sparsely filled Lafayette County courtroom. When the judge gave him the opportunity to speak, he declined.
