MARION, N.C. (AP) — A man convicted of killing his girlfriend, his girlfriend's daughter and his own daughter has been sentenced to death.

District Attorney Brad Greenway told The Asheville Citizen-Times that a McDowell County jury returned its decision Monday after deliberating all day Friday.

Authorities say 52-year-old Stephen Buckner became angry in January 2008 when his girlfriend, Vicky Lowery, decided to move out.

Investigators say Buckner shot Lowery, Lowery's 14-year-old daughter Chelsea Gregory, and his 25-year-old daughter Rebecca Buckner several times.

The death sentence was given for killing the younger victims. Buckner was sentenced to life without parole for shooting Lowery.

Buckner was convicted of three counts of first degree murder on Nov. 2.
