Man sentenced to 90 years

Thomas Frank Cisco Jr., the only person ever arrested in connection with the July 6, 1997, triple slaying at KKs Corner convenience store in Lake Charles, was sentenced to 90 years in prison.

Cisco pleaded guilty on Friday to three manslaughter counts, bypassing trial on charges of second-degree murder. The charges had been amended in 2008 from three counts of first-degree murder.

Rather than face a second trial, Cisco, 41, agreed to a plea deal worked out between Assistant Attorney General David Caldwell and defense attorney Michelle Fournet of Baton Rouge.

Caldwell amended the second-degree murder counts to manslaughter and recommended the maximum sentence of 40 years on each count. Two terms and 10 years of the third are to run back to back for a total of 90 years
