FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A Fort Wayne man facing at least 200 years behind bars for a quadruple murder will be sentenced this week.

The two-day sentencing hearing for 23-year-old Marcus Dansby starts today in Allen Superior Court, according to the Journal Gazette.

Dansby pleaded “guilty but mentally ill” last May to the September 11, 2016 killings of three people, one of which was his pregnant girlfriend. The fetus died as well, leading to the fourth murder charge. A 14-year-old was shot but survived.

The plea deal took the death penalty off the table, but Dansby will never be free again, as he could be sentenced to as many as 320 years in prison.

320 years!! Really! Why give this man a plea deal. The prosecutors need to stop with the plea deals to spare these monsters the justice they deserve and start dishing out the death penalty when it is appropriate. And I’m sorry, but in this case, it is more than appropriate! Why are my tax dollars going to pay to feed this man for the next 60 years. This is not the justice the PEOPLE want nor deserve!
