N.H. man sentenced to life in prison again

MANCHESTER, N.H. — A New Hampshire man convicted of hacking to death a woman and maiming her daughter in a 2009 home invasion was sentenced once again Friday to life in prison without parole, plus 76 years.

Steven Spader was required to be resentenced under a US Supreme Court ruling last June that threw out mandatory life in prison with parole for juveniles. The court held that children cannot be automatically punished the same way as criminal adults without considering their age and other factors.
