Re-sentencing Continues For FL Man Who Beat Parents To Death With Hammer

posted by Jessi Minneci - 

Inside a Treasure Coast courtroom, a re-sentencing hearing continues on Tuesday for Tyler Hadley.

Hadley was 17 when he beat his parents to death with a hammer in 2011.

Prosecutors say he left their bodies locked in a bedroom while he hosted a party with friends.

Hadley was given a double-life sentence, but there have been changes to Florida's juvenile justice laws since the initial sentencing.

Lawyers for the 24-year-old want his sentence reduced to 40-years with a chance for parole after 25.

The re-sentencing hearing could stretch into next week
