Luong gets death in children's murder case

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A judge has ordered a death sentence for a coastal Alabama man who was convicted of murdering four young children by tossing them from a bridge.

Circuit Judge Charles Graddick handed down the death sentence Thursday to Lam Luong (lahm loo-AWNG').

The 38-year-old jobless shrimper was convicted in March for killing the children on Jan. 7, 2008.

A Vietnamese refugee, Luong was accused of dropping the four - ranging in age from 3 years to 4 months - from the top of an 80-foot-high span after an argument with their mother.
