The cup was sentenced Friday, Feb. 16, 2024 to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Karel was said to have threatened his wife thus: “If I can’t have them neither can you”, hence his decision to terminate the lives of his children by drowning them.

The Lake County judge sentenced Jason Karels, of Round Lake Beach, after considering victim-impact statements written by the children’s mother, maternal grandmother and aunt that called Karels “a `monster’ who destroyed many lives,” the prosecutor said in a statement.
