After being convicted of their murders, Shaun Bosse was sentenced to death, 35 years for arson and was fined $25,000.

On Tuesday, Bosse learned that he will not be put to death for the crime.

According to The Hill, the U.S. Supreme Court threw out Bosse’s death sentence because the victim’s family recommended the punishment to the jury.
