A judge in Fairfax County, Virginia, stuck to the jury’s recommendation when sentencing a local mother to 78 years in prison in murdering her two daughters to spite her Navy pilot ex-husband.

Authorities have said that Veronica Youngblood, 38, fatally shot Brooklynn Youngblood, 5, and Sharon Castro, 15. Brooklynn died at the scene of a gunshot to the head. Sharon, suffering gunshot wounds to her chest and back, managed to call 911. She passed away at the hospital.

The 78-year sentence falls short of what the girls’ father, Ron Youngblood, wanted. He wanted his ex-wife to serve life in prison, he told The Washington Post after sentencing on Friday.

“It’s been well over five years since I lost my girls,” he reportedly said. “I’ve come up with ways of coping, but I am never going to recover. I made those girls promises. I tried to raise them by example. But keeping them alive was the promise I couldn’t keep.”
