FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A North Texas man convicted in the strangling deaths of his two young sons has been sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (https://bit.ly/1HPYjKb ) reports a Tarrant County jury on Thursday chose not to give Gabriel Armandariz the death penalty.

Armandariz was convicted last month of capital murder in the 2011 deaths of his sons, 8-month-old Luke and 2-year-old Gatlin.

Investigators say Armandariz had a dispute with the children’s mother and sent her a photo of the baby hanging by the neck.

The newspaper says the bodies were found in a crawl space under a home Armandariz shared with his relatives in Graham.
