The man who killed five people during the 2018 mass shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis was sentenced to six life terms in prison, five of them without the possibility of parole, the newspaper reported on Tuesday.

An Anne Arundel County judge also sentenced 41-year-old Jarrod Ramos to 345 years of prison, in addition to the life terms, all of which will be served consecutively, the report said. It was the toughest punishment that Circuit Judge Michael Wachs could give.

Wachs said the “impact of this case is simply immense,” according to the report.

He added, “To say the defendant showed a callous and cruel disregard for the sanctity of human life is simply an understatement.”

In July, A jury in Annapolis found Ramos criminally responsible for the five murders at the newspaper on June 28, 2018, Insider previously reported.

The jury rejected the mental-illness argument Jarrod Ramos’s defense had put forward, after he carried out a vendetta-fueled shooting spree that killed Gerald Fischman, Rob Hiaasen, John McNamara, Rebecca Smith and Wendi Winters.

Ramos had filed a lawsuit against the Gazette years earlier, accusing the paper of filing a defamatory article in which he reportedly harassed a woman for a year after contacting her on Facebook. He became obsessed with the paper after that.

Ramos had pleaded guilty to 23 charges in 2019 related to the mass shooting at the newsroom, but his attorneys argues he was insane at the time because of his mental conditions.
