- A Bloomington man will spend 48 years in prison for murdering his wife and shooting two of his neighbors last summer. A judge sentenced Jason Mesich today after he pleaded guilty last month to second degree murder and other charges. The 48-year-old admitted to shooting Angela Mesich 12 times last August in the garage. And from there, he shot a 12-year-old and her 29-year-old sister who are helping move the family out of the neighborhood. The mother of the victims share their family's pain during a virtual hearing today.

MILDRED SAULTER: Glad that they're both doing better, but it's been such a struggle. I've never had PTSD, and I find myself leaving the room to cry, and then coming back with my game face on to be strong for her.

And I just want him to be-- to spend as much time as the judge will get him in there. Because he deserves every bit of it. My whole family is being affected by this.

- Mesich apologized for what he did, and said that he will live with it for the rest of his life.
