SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – The man convicted of killing three members of a San Francisco family will be spending the rest of his life behind bars.
25-year-old Edwin Ramos was sentenced Monday to three consecutive life sentences without possibility of parole for the murders of 49-year-old Tony Bologna and his two sons, Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16, in the city’s Excelsior District in 2008.
The verdict was delivered shortly before noon Monday.
Just before the sentence was given, Ramos addressed the courtroom, offering his condolences to the Bologna family.
“There’s not a day that goes by that that’s not on my mind,” he said of the shooting. “If I could go back in time and trade places with any of them, I would.”
“No words can express my condolences,” he told the family. Prosecutors alleged during the trial that Ramos is a member of the violent MS-13 gang and shot the family members after mistaking them for rival gang members.
