ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A 24-year-old Anchorage man was sentenced to 81 years in prison for trying to kill two people.
Christian Beier was convicted July 13 of two counts of first-degree attempted murder. Anchorage television station KTUU reports Beier was sentenced Tuesday to 141 years in prison with 60 suspended.
Beier on October 23, 2015, shot 19-year-old Caia Delavergne through the eye and shot 17-year-old Conor Lally multiple times in the chest inside a west Anchorage home.
He later posted messages to Facebook and sent messages to the victims claiming they deserved to be shot. He also threatened to “finish the job.”
