Ex-airline pilot gets life for triple murder

A former pilot with American Airlines regional carrier PSA was handed a life sentence without parole for a gruesome triple homicide.

The sentence had been recommended by a jury who found Christian Martin guilty in June.

Martin was taken off a plane in handcuffs at Louisville Airport in 2019 and was later charged. He was still wearing his pilot uniform for the arrest mugshot.

The court heard he fatally shot three of his neighbors and set a car ablaze containing two of the bodies.

One of the victims was a witness set to testify in Martin's military court-martial trial.

Bedore flying commercially, Martin was in the military for 30 years.

The former pilot plans to appeal.
