Former Prison Guard Gets Life

Former correction officer Everett George, who killed his 2 kids, gets life in prison
The New York Daily News bY JOSE MARTINEZ - November 24, 2008

A deranged former corrections officer who killed his two kids in front of their mother was sentenced to life in prison Monday - the fourth anniversary of the horrific murders. Former jail guard Everett George was expressionless as Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Gregory Carro laid down the harshest sentence possible. "Your parents can talk to you, write you, touch you, even visit you," mom Tishaun Middleton said. "I visit my children at their gravesite. I now kiss their headstone." George shot his 12-year-old son Dominick in the heart and executed 1-year-old daughter Kristina as she sat in a high chair after spraying Middleton with Mace when she walked into her Harlem apartment. Middleton, who wore a T-shirt with her kids' names and pictures, testified during George's trial that he would have killed her too, had his gun not jammed when he pointed it at her. "Your intentions were to annihilate my whole family, but God intervened," she said. George worked a year at Rikers Island as a correction officer before quitting in 1998. When he reapplied in 2000, he was fired days into his training. Defense lawyer George Goltzer disputed a pre-sentencing report that he said portrayed George as a "Charles Mason-type figure." "Mr. George is not Charles Manson," he said. "He is a man who suffers from a mental illness." Goltzer contended George was suffering from an "extreme emotional disturbance" when he killed Dominick, an autistic boy, and Kristina, who was nicknamed Cookie. "This is the saddest case I have ever seen, and I have been doing this a very long time," Goltzer said. George had been hoping for a sentence of 20 years to life. "I don't want you to be able to inflict this type of pain on anyone else," Middleton said. "Now my children, Dominick and Kristina, can rest in peace for what you have done to them."
