A former federal customs agent who was found guilty in the 2010 double homicide of his estranged wife and her live-in boyfriend was sentenced today to life in prison without parole.
Michael Abrah Ntiamoah, who once worked for U.S. Customs and Border Protection at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, had asked a Cobb County judge and the victims' families for forgiveness during a three-day sentencing hearing that concluded today, according to WSB-TV.
He said he was depressed and drinking when he shot Fatoumata Ntiamoah, 27, and Mohamed Zaine, 32, early on the morning of Dec. 18, 2010, at their Kennesaw home on Bexley Place.
Fatoumata Ntiamoah was married to Michael Ntiamoah, but was living with Zaine at the time of the murders, Cobb police officer Joseph Hernandez said in 2010.
Michael Ntiamoah said he couldn't deal with the fact that his wife was with another man, but that the murders could have been avoided if he'd sought help to deal with his personal problems, according to WSB-TV.
