FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) -- A man accused of killing his parents and then throwing a party with their bodies still inside the house has been given two life sentences without the possibility of parole.

Authorities say Tyler Hadley killed his parents, Mary Jo and Blake Hadley, in 2011. Hadley pleaded no contest in February to two counts of first-degree murder. He couldn't receive a death sentence because he was 17 at the time of the killings.

During Thursday's sentencing in St. Lucie County, Judge Robert R. Makemson said the crime was brutal, heinous and premeditated.

Hadley's attorney had argued for two 30-year sentences, to be served concurrently, with a review after 20 years.

A fellow inmate has said Hadley signs autographs and refers to himself as "hammer boy" in jail.
