A Wisconsin man has been sentenced to prison more than a year after he called 911 to report that he had just murdered five family members.

Christopher P. Stokes, 44, was sentenced to 205 years in prison for the April 2020 murders of Marcus Stokes, 19, Demetrius Thomas, 14, Tera Agee, 16, Lakeitha Stokes, 17, and Teresa Thomas, 41, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

“Don’t know what in the world came over me. Woke up and just had blood on my mind. Something just wasn’t going right. It was, I don’t know,” Stokes said, WITI reports. “The reality is, I can’t take it back. I did the ultimate sin… I deserve to be locked up. I deserve everything I get. I’m not asking for no leniency or anything like that. I deserve it. No one in the world should have done what I did.”

Stokes received 40 years behind bars for each of the five counts of first-degree reckless homicide he pleaded guilty to in June, plus another five years for illegally possessing a gun as a convicted felon, according to the Associated Press.

According to a criminal complaint, on the morning of April 27, 2020, Stokes called 911 and told dispatchers, “I just massacred my whole family,” WISN reported at the time.
