SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - A Silicon Valley engineer will spend the rest of his life behind bars for fatally shooting three of his co-workers after he was fired nearly five years ago.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that 52-year-old Jin Hua Wu was sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

In March, Wu was found guilty for the murders of SiPort CEO Sid Agrawal, supervisor Brian Pugh and office manager Marilyn Lewis in Santa Clara on Nov. 14, 2008.

The Santa Clara County jury ruled that Wu was sane when he committed the crimes. Wu's attorneys argued he was mentally ill.

Authorities say Wu had been working as an engineer at SiPort for two years when he opened fire on his colleagues after being fired earlier that day.
