Life in prison for man convicted of Arlington murder

Posted: Updated:

(AP) -- A jury has sentenced a North Texas man to life in prison without parole for fatally shooting his estranged wife and two others and wounding a fourth person.

Dalton Bennett was convicted of capital murder on Friday. Since prosecutors did not seek the death penalty, Bennett was given an automatic life sentence.

The 47-year-old was convicted for the June 2011 deaths of his estranged wife, Sheryl Bennett, her boyfriend, Jose Reyes, and her sister-in-law, Tana Todd. Sheryl Bennett's brother, Johnny Todd, was also shot but survived.

Tarrant County prosecutors said Bennett walked into his estranged wife's apartment in Arlington after seeing her with friends at a bar and shot her, Reyes and Tana Todd in the head at close range. Johnny Todd was shot in the neck but survived.
