Man sentenced to life-term for '07 maul hammer triple murder
Chicago Tribune ^ | 1/07/13

Posted on 01/07/2013 7:12:45 PM PST by Libloather

A man who was convicted of using a maul hammer to kill his wife, sister-in-law and mother-in-law in their West Rogers Park home because he felt disrespected was sentenced to a life prison term, prosecutors said.

Daryoush Ebrahimi, 61, was sentenced today in connection with killings that happened on Feb. 17, 2007 at their apartment. Ebrahimi had been convicted of the three murders last August, prosecutors said in a press release.

According to prosecutors, the Chicago Police and Fire Departments were called to Ebrahimi’s home in the 6400 Block of North Washtenaw Avenue after a relative called 911 after receiving a phone call from Ebrahimi. When investigators arrived, they found Ebrahimi in his apartment covered in blood and striking himself in the head with a hammer.

What is with these nutcases that they all try to kill themselves with their weapons in the end?

Seriesly, hitting yourself in the head with a hammer suicide!?

What the hell! Chicago and he had to use a hammer? Did he not have access to a gun, or did he just want to be different.

All hammers except hammers used for hunting should be banned.

Just think, in 10 or 15 years, he could be out on the street ambushing firemen.

in their West Rogers Park home. . . . in the 6400 Block of North Washtenaw Avenue. . . .

I grew up in West Rogers Park, in the 6400 block of North Maplewood Avenue--less than a quarter of a mile away! Needless to say, the old neighborhood has changed a bit. The demographics have changed. And there was no crime at all when I grew up there in the '50s and '60s.

Double-headed mauls need to be outlawed! If he had a single-headed maul, he couldn’t have killed all three.

Who needs a maul with two heads anyway?

Would have saved a lot of time and trouble if the first responder had taken away the hammer and said “No dumbazz...like THIS!” Smunch

I want to know why it took so long for him to be sentenced. Crime committed in 2007, he's not sentenced 'til 2013? When the hell was the trial? I found a story on the murders from 2007 which said he is Assyrian (Christian) who immigrated from Iran. Here's the link to the article:

Hang the SOB with a grease coated rope.
He’s guilty and taxpayers should not have to support him.
His victims can no longer breathe and neither should he.

His wife must have been a real pistol before she became a ploughshare.
