JUVENILE LIFER RESENTENCED TO 80-160 YEARS IN PRISON FOR 1998 MASS SLAYING AT BRISTOL HOUSE PARTY

Ivory King

A man serving four consecutive life sentences for killing four people when he was 17 at a house party in Bristol Township was resentenced on Monday, Nov. 21, 2022, to serve 80 to 160 years in state prison.

Ivory King, now 41, was originally sentenced on Oct. 28, 1998, to four consecutive terms of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, following his conviction on four counts of first-degree murder and related offenses for the mass murder that happened earlier that year at the Venice-Ashby apartment complex in Bristol.

The resentencing hearing, which began on Friday, was required by a series of federal and state appellate court decisions that declared mandatory life sentences for juveniles to be unconstitutional. Similar proceedings have been held throughout Pennsylvania as a result.

King is the last of six juvenile lifers in Bucks County to be resentenced.
