Anthony Sanders found guilty of 2007 murders

DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A judge sentenced Anthony Sanders to life in prison without parole, for the July 2007 slayings of a mother and her two children.

The trial lasted only a day and a half, according to the First Circuit Solicitor's Office. Sanders agreed to a bench trial, which means a judge decides guilt or innocence, not a jury. He also agreed not to appeal the judge's decision, if found guilty.

Sanders shot and killed Diane Grant, 44, her daughter Deanna Devore, 15, and her son, Jatavius Devore, 20. The murders took place at the Archdale Forest Apartment complex on Dorchester Road.

Sanders was arrested in July 2007, and charged with three counts of murder.

The victims' family asked the Solicitor's Office not to seek the death penalty, due to the possibility of years of parole.
