Nehwish Rana said in a written statement before the court Thursday that he hoped Billy J. Ingram would burn in Hell for killing his father last year.
Judge Kathryn Foster couldn’t grant that request, but she sentenced Ingram, 21, to the closest thing the legal system has to offer: a life sentence without parole.
Foster described Billy J. Ingram, who chose not to speak on his own behalf, as "indifferent" to the impact his actions had on Rana's family.
"What frightens me is that nobody could really predict you would do this," she said.
Ingram was found guilty in June of shooting and killing Nayyer Rana, 56, during a botched armed robbery of Waukesha’s Petro Mart on May 29, 2012.» Read Full Article

According to the criminal complaint, Waukesha City Police detectives discovered during a June 9 investigation that several files being shared online contained child pornography.
