I seriously can ‘t make this up…

DARLINGTON — An Argyle man who helped kill his three young nephews in a house fire last September did not receive the maximum sentences Thursday and has just a sliver of a chance of not spending the rest of his life in prison.

Jeremy Wand, 19, was sentenced to three life terms to be served concurrently and with eligibility for parole after 35 years for deliberately starting fires in a house that killed Allen Wand, 7; Jeffery Wand, 5; and Joseph Wand, 3.

“I hope not to see anything that could be worse than this,” Green County Circuit Judge Thomas Vale told Wand. “It doesn’t get any worse than this.”

Wand’s brother, Armin Wand III, 33, was sentenced by Vale in April to three life terms to be served consecutively with no hope of parole after he admitted to wanting to kill his family so he could cash in on their life insurance policies and get a “fresh start” with his life.

Jeremy Wand, who was 18 at the time, set most of the fires in the rented home during the early-morning hours of Sept. 7 after his brother offered him $300 to help him, according to court documents.
