Armored car guard Travis Baumgartner, who killed three co-workers and severely injured a fourth, pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder and a charge of attempted murder in a plea bargain on September 9th. Two days later he was sentenced to life in prison with no parole for at least 40 years. It was the first sentence based on a 2011 federal law that allowed for consecutive parole terms in cases involving multiple murders. Crown prosecutor Steve Bilodeau said the long sentence was justified. (Justice John Rooke called Baumgartner a coward and a cold-blooded killer.)
