Christopher Stokes, a Milwaukee man, accused of fatally shooting and killing five of his family members, has told a Milwaukee County Circuit Court that he deserved to be locked up.

The court sentenced Stokes to 205 years in prison for the killings as he offered no explanation for his actions, saying that he must have a lot of hate.

Stokes also told Judge Michelle Havas that he wasn’t asking for leniency and that he deserved to be locked up.

According to the convict, 44, he couldn’t explain why he killed his family members.

Those Stokes killed were Teresa Thomas, 41, and her two children, 16-year-old Tiera Agee and 14-year-old Demetrius Thomas, 19-year-old Marcus Stokes and 17-year-old Lakeitha Stokes, leaving only his three-year-old grandchild.

Prosecutors say the child witnessed the shootings and asked Stokes not to hurt him.

A criminal complaint said Stokes called 911 on April 27, 2020, and told dispatchers he had “just massacred” his family.

Judge Havas sentenced Stokes to 40 years in prison for each of the five counts of first-degree reckless homicide he earlier pleaded guilty to, plus another five years for illegally possessing a gun as a convicted felon.
