Emotions ran high as the man convicted of killing three teens at the Michigan-Wisconsin border near Niagara was sentenced to life in prison Thursday.

Family and friends expressed anger, sadness and regret before 38-year old Scott J. Johnson was sentenced for last summer's murders of Bryan Mort, Tiffany Pohlson and Anthony Spigarelli.

Anthony's mother, Terry Spigarelli, says her son was just about to begin his own life before it was tragically cut short by a "waste of space."

Scott Johnson did read a statement in which he never expressed remorse for his actions, although he did blame his negative portrayal on the media.

Marinette County Judge Timothy Duket called Johnson paranoid and delusional and says his actions were incomprehensible.

The judge gave Johnson three life sentences in prison with no possibility of parole.
