Okla. man sentenced to death for 2010 killings

PURCELL, Okla. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a Blanchard man to death for the killings of a Dibble woman and her two children.

Shaun Michael Bosse was convicted in October for the 2010 deaths of 25-year-old Katrina Griffin, 8-year-old Christian Griffin and 6-year-old Chasity Hammer. Their bodies were found in their burned home.

A jury recommended that Bosse receive the death penalty, and a judge in McClain County handed down that sentence on Tuesday.

Bosse received three death sentences, plus a 35-year prison term on an arson conviction.

Defense attorney Gary Henry has argued there was no evidence that Bosse committed the crimes and has said an appeal is planned.
