Convicted 7-Eleven murderer receives 4 life sentences in federal court for charges across state

The man convicted for his part in a shooting murder outside a Madison gas station received four life sentences without parole in federal court Friday for separate charges across the state.

Curtis J. Langolis, 37, pleaded guilty in federal court to two counts of armed robbery, two counts of using a firearm during a crime of violence, one count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and one count of facilitating the straw purchase of a firearm.

Court officials said the felony was enhanced based on previous felony convictions.

On July 27, Langlois and his girlfriend, Holly Antijunti, went to the Gander Mountain store in Rothschild to purchase a handgun and ammunition. Langlois picked out a Hi-Point Model C-9, 9mm Luger semi-automatic pistol, for Antijunti to purchase on his behalf. He also picked out a box of ammunition.

With Langlois standing next to her, Antijunti filled out a form claiming she was the buyer and that she was not buying the gun on behalf of another person, according to the court report.

At approximately 11:30 p.m. on Aug. 2, Langlois entered the Family Video store in Wausau, Wisconsin. He pointed a black semiautomatic pistol at Aaron Carr, the lone store clerk. Carr pulled the drawers out of both registers and handed them to Langlois, who pulled out all of the cash, according to the court report.

At approximately 11:47 p.m. on Aug.7, Langlois entered the Fast Break Mobil gas station and convenience store in Wausau. Langlois walked up to the clerk, Sohin Patel, who was behind the counter, and pointed a black semi-automatic pistol at him. Langlois stole $2,150 in cash, according to the court report.

At her plea hearing, Antijunti said she met Langlois in Madison in June 2017 at a conference. She admitted she knew Langlois was a convicted felon who had served prison time when she bought the gun and ammunition for him at the Gander Mountain store

In December, Langlois told a federal judge in court that he didn’t have any remorse for killing 32-year-old Kendrith J. Young in August.

Young and another man were shot at the 7-Eleven gas station on the West Beltline Highway on Aug. 2. Young was shot eight times. Another man with Young was also shot and lived.
