The Butte County man convicted of murdering three people and leaving their bodies in a burning car in Magalia was sentenced the maximum today.

73-year old Donald Clark was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Butte County Judge Tamara Mosberger handed down the sentence in Butte County Superior Court.

In May of this year, Clark was found guilty of first degree murder in the deaths of 15-year-old Roland Lowe and his mother, 46-year-old Coleen Lowe. He was found guilty of second degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Richard Jones. All 3 victims were shot and their bodies burned in a car in Magalia in June of last year.

Today, District Attorney Mike Ramsey said, "Justice was served, Clark will never see the light of freedom again." Ramsey described Clark as arrogant and egotistical.

Family of the victims did speak. They spoke of their loss of their loved ones.
