Former pilot gets life sentence in killing of 3 neighbors

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s attorney general said a former Army major accused of killing three neighbors to eliminate a witness in a court-martial has been sentenced to life in prison. Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Thursday in a statement that Christian Richard Martin will not be eligible for parole. Jurors convicted Martin after a two-week trial in June in the deaths of Calvin and Pamela Phillips and Edward Dansereau in Pembroke. Martin was a pilot for an American Airlines subsidiary when he was pulled off a jet in handcuffs before taking off from the Louisville airport four years after the killings.
