James Scott Largin’s murder convictions in the 2007 killings of his parents in Tuscaloosa were upheld Friday by the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals, Attorney General Luther Strange said Monday.
Largin, 46, was sentenced to death by a Tuscaloosa County judge in 2009, murdered his parents, Jimmy, 68, and Peggy, 56. Before shooting them, he stole their cash and credit cards to purchase crack cocaine, Strange said.
Largin, who was 35 at the time of the killings, allegedly told police investigators that the deaths weren’t “murder … not in the cold-blooded sense,” according to the Alabama attorney general.
He was arrested after University of Alabama police found his parents’ car near the campus a few days after the murders, the Associated Press reported at the time.
Largin was appealing his conviction, and among the testimonies the appeals court heard from were fellow inmates who said the Tuscaloosa man confessed to them that he killed his parents.
A prosecutor at Largin’s original trial said Largin showed no remorse over the murders. The judge agreed with the jury’s recommendation that Largin be given the death penalty. His defense attorneys argued for life in prison without parole
