Man sentenced for killing wife, shooting daughters

By The Associated Press

EVANSVILLE — A southwestern Indiana man convicted of killing his wife and shooting his adult twin daughters has been sentenced to 150 years in prison.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports Clinton Loehrlein learned his sentence Monday after a Vanderburgh County jury last year found the Darmstadt man guilty of murder in the January 2017 slaying of 52-year-old Sherry Loehrlein, two counts of attempted murder, two counts of aggravated battery and misdemeanor resisting law enforcement.

Vanderburgh Superior Court on Judge Robert Pigman in January denied a request by Loehrlein's attorney to set aside his felony convictions. Sentencing is set for Feb. 13.

His daughters testified during his trial, describing being shot by their father, who also shot and stabbed their mother.

Loehrlein had claimed insanity in the January 2017 attack .
