DALTON, Ga. (AP) — A northwest Georgia man accused in the deaths of his father and brother has been sentenced to life in prison. The Dalton Daily Citizen reports that (http://bit.ly/19xaJpb ) Emilio Christopher Canales was sentenced Friday to two consecutive life terms plus 25 years for shooting his father, brother and his mother in April 2012. Officials say the man's mother was wounded in her back. Canales' mother told the judge her abusive husband may have factored into the incident. Prosecutors countered by saying Canales obtained several gang-related tattoos while he was behind bars, and that he killed his relatives in cold blood. ___ Information from: The Daily Citizen, http://www.daltondailycitizen.com
