90 Years Behind Bars for Va. Man, 29, Who Killed 3 Family Members

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A man will serve 90 years in prison after pleading guilty to killing his parents and his sister at their home in Chesterfield County last year.

Local news agencies report 29-year-old Carl V. Hughes IV was sentenced to 150 years in prison with 60 years suspended after pleading guilty Monday to three counts of first-degree murder.

Police discovered Hughes’ father, 71-year-old Carl V. Hughes Jr.; his mother, 54-year-old Angela Hughes; and his sister, 22-year-old Bianca Hughes stabbed to death in the family’s home Sept. 23, 2015.

Attorney John Rockecharlie says his client felt he had no other option but to kill his family members after having been on a three-to-four-day crack binge and not in his right mind.

Rockecharlie says Hughes has been remorseful for his actions.
