SANTA ANA, Calif. — The Latest on the sentencing of a man who killed eight people in a California shooting (all times local):

12:05 p.m.

A California man has been sentenced to eight consecutive life terms for killing his hairstylist ex-wife and seven others in a shooting at a salon in 2011.

Orange County Superior Court Judge Thomas M. Goethals handed down the punishment Friday for 47-year-old Scott Dekraai.

He pleaded guilty in 2014. His sentencing was delayed by a long-running scandal over the county's use of jailhouse snitches to cull information from Dekraai and other inmates.

The judge last month removed the death penalty as an option for Dekraai due to authorities' repeated failures to turn over informant-related records. State Attorney General Xavier Becerra says he will abide by that decision.

Dekraai was in a custody dispute with ex-wife Michelle Fournier over their 8-year-old son when he entered the salon where she worked and opened fire. He was arrested within minutes.

12 a.m.

A California man faces life in prison at his sentencing for killing his ex-wife and seven others at the hair salon where she worked.

Scott Dekraai (deh-KREYE'), a 47-year-old former tugboat operator, is scheduled to be sentenced Friday in Orange County.

Dekraai pleaded guilty in 2014 to eight counts of murder and one count of attempted murder.

His case has dragged on for years due to a scandal over authorities' use of informants to cull information from Dekraai and others housed in the county's jails.

Prosecutors wanted Dekraai sentenced to death for opening fire in the Seal Beach salon in 2011. But a judge found authorities' repeated failures to turn over informant-related records jeopardized the killer's right to a fair trial and removed the possibility of a death sentence.
