Ernie Scherer III Sentenced

Poker pro Ernie Scherer III has received a life sentence for the murder of his parents, 60-year-old Ernest Scherer Jr. and 57-year-old Charlene Abendroth. 

The couple was found brutally beaten and stabbed to death in their Pleasanton home in March 2008. 

Prior to sentencing, the accused killer issued a rambling statement insisting that he loved his parents.  The judge did not appear swayed by the statement.

Gambling911.com had covered the trial throughout these past few months.  It was among the first websites to report on the murders outside of local San Francisco Bay area news sites.
