Garett, 11, and Gavin, 9, with their mother Sheri, were strangled to death in their home by Christopher Coleman, their father.
Garett and Gavin’s father, after strangling his sons and wife in their beds, spray painted threatening messages on the wall with red paint to make it look like someone else committed the crimes. He was able to do this, as his children lay dead and still tucked into their beds as if they were sleeping.
He left the house the day of the murders to set up and alibi by going to the gym but it was later found that Garett, Gavin and their mother had been killed hours before he left the house.
Before the murders it has been shown that he set up an email account to send threatening emails to himself to throw investigators off his trail.
An investigation showed that Christopher murdered his family so he could start a new life with this mistress.
Christopher Coleman was charged with 3 counts of first-degree murder of his family. He was convicted and sentenced to life without parole.
