Man sentenced to two life terms for shooting, killing estranged wife

PRINCE GEORGE’S CO., MD — A former federal officer charged in the killings of three people in a two-day shooting rampage in May 2016 was sentenced Wednesday morning for the murder of his estranged wife.

A judge in Prince George’s County sentenced Eulalio Tordil, 63, to two life sentences for the killing of Gladys Tordil and attempted murder of a good Samaritan who tried to intervene.

DCW50 was in the courtroom today, where  Tordil’s attorney asked the judge for mercy, emphasizing his client’s years serving in the military and law enforcement. The defense also pointed out Tordil’s Catholic upbringing and regimented career saying that something unraveled in the 63-year-old’s life to have caused him to become violent.  His attorneys blamed his bad finances, failed marriage, and losing his job.

The judge ordered that the two life terms run back-to-back on top of four consecutive life sentences Tordil received back in July in Montgomery County for the killings of two other people during two carjackings.

This sentence closes a case that put the DC suburbs on edge during the two-day shooting spree that left three dead and wounded others.
