Braintree High School graduate Amy Bishop was sentenced on Monday to life without parole by a judge in Alabama for a shooting rampage that killed three university faculty.
Bishop was in court on Monday two weeks after pleading guilty to capital murder. Judge Alan Mann handed down the sentence in Huntsville, according to a report by the local NBC affiliate, Channel 12.
The former professor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville admitted earlier this month to shooting to death three colleagues and wounding three others during a meeting at the university in 2010, according to the Associated Press.
In Massachusetts, the 47-year-old Bishop is charged with murdering her brother Seth Bishop, an 18-year-old at the time, with a shotgun in the family home in Braintree. That incident was originally labeled an accident until the Alabama shooting prompted officials to re-examine the 1986 slaying.
