An Allen Superior Court jury today recommended that Cohen Hancz-Barron be sentenced to life without parole on four murder counts.

Judge Fran Gull set sentencing for Aug. 5.

The jury earlier found Hancz-Barron guilty in the deaths of Sarah Zent and her three children in their Gay Street home on June 3.

Hancz-Barron, 22, showed no emotion and stared at Gull when she read the verdicts.

He was accused of using a knife to kill his girlfriend Zent, 26, and her three children -- Carter Mathew Zent, 5; Ashton Duwayne Zent, 3; and Aubree Christine Zent, 2.
