An ex-convict will spend the rest of his life behind bars in the slayings of his two young children and two stepchildren at his Dearborn Heights home.

Gregory Green was sentenced 47-102 years in Wayne County Circuit Court today.

He pleaded guilty Feb. 15 to second-degree murder in September's carbon monoxide poisonings of Koi and Kaleigh Green -- ages 5 and 4 -- and the shooting deaths of Chadney and Kara Allen -- 19 and 17 -- in his Dearborn Heights home.

His wife, Faith Green, was shot and slashed but survived. She was mother to all four children. Gregory Green was biological father to Koi and Kaleigh.

Gregory Green previously spent 16 in prison for killing his first wife, who was pregnant.
