    DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A man convicted in the slayings of three young men found buried at a suburban Philadelphia farm was sentenced to life in prison after authorities dropped their pursuit of the death penalty.

    A Bucks County judge sentenced 22-year-old Sean Kratz to life in prison without parole Monday, three days after he was convicted of first-degree murder and other offenses.

    Prosecutors said victims' families had understood they wouldn't seek the death penalty.

    A cousin, 22-year-old Cosmo DiNardo, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison.

    Prosecutors say DiNardo lured the victims to his family's Solebury farm in 2017 as part of a robbery plot.

    They say Kratz shot one man and served as a lookout while DiNardo killed the others.

    DiNardo also confessed to killing a fourth man.
