Wis. man sentenced for killing parents

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A judge has sentenced a 21-year-old Mequon man to life in prison for killing his parents at the family home last year.

   Dennis Markov told the court Friday that he and his parents had a lot of arguments as he grew up, and he "decided to make that day the last time we'd argue."

   Markov pleaded guilty last month to two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the April 2011 shooting deaths of 45-year-old Victor Markov and 39-year-old Larissa Markov.

   District Attorney Adam Gerol says the Markovs, who emigrated from Ukraine, did everything right -- "Their only downfall was that their only child proved to be a monster."

   The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the judge decided that Denis Markov serve 55 years before being considered for supervised release.
