Levi King's life spared, will spend the rest of his behind bars

By Katie Bauer - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Twenty-seven-year-old Levi King will spend the rest of his life behind bars. King confessed to shooting Brian Conrad, his pregnant wife Michele, and her 14-year-old son Zach back in September 2005. Michele's 10-year-old daughter Robin was the sole survivor.

NewsChannel 11's Katie Bauer has been following this trial for over a month and reports from the Lubbock County Courthouse.   

Around 4 p.m. Wednesday Lubbock County Jurors sentenced King to life in prison without the possibility of parole. It's been more than a month since the trial first began. The jury began deliberating at 8:15 Wednesday morning and nearly eight hours later they had made a decision. Most of the jury was crying when the sentence was read aloud. Family members were very emotional and made statements to Levi King including sole survivor 14-year-old Robin Doan.

Gray County District Attorney Lynn Spitzer urged the jury that the death penalty was an appropriate sentence, but believed justice was served. "Justice is always served when we have a jury of our peers listen to the facts and make that decision. If it were up to just myself or the defense team or a judge to make that decision we wouldn't have the system we have. The people of Lubbock County have spoken," says Switzer after the jury delivered King's sentence.
