We're wrapping up our live coverage of today's sentencing, but here's some key moments from the hearing:
- The sentence: Patterson received one life sentence each for the murders of James and Denise Closs and was given a 40-year sentence for the kidnapping, including 25 years in prison and 15 years on parole.
- Jayme's statement: She wrote a statement, which was read by her attorney in court. In it, she said, "Jake Patterson took a lot of things that I love away from me. It makes me the most sad that he took away my mom and my dad. I used to love to go out with my friends. I love to go to school. I love to dance. He took all of those things away from me, too. It's too hard for me to go out in public."
- What her family said: Jayme's aunt Jennifer Smith told reporters that they were satisfied with the judge's sentence. "Today was a very important step in the process of helping Jayme to move forward. We are satisfied with the outcome and believe that it will give Jayme some much needed peace of mind," she said.
