Andre Leteve of Scottsdale sentenced to death for murdering 2 young sons in 2010

A Scottsdale man has been sentenced to death for murdering his two young sons in 2010.

Andre Leteve was found guilty of first degree murder in October for shooting his boys before turning the gun on himself in a failed suicide attempt.

The incident happened around 8 a.m. on March 31, 2010, south of Indian Bend Road, just west of Hayden Road.

Leteve was sentenced to death Wednesday afternoon for both first degree murder charges.

In 2010, police said Leteve called 911 to report the shooting and reportedly admitted to shooting his children.

"What's going on?" asked the 911 operator.

"I shot and killed my sons and shot myself," Leteve is heard saying on the 911 tape.

"You did what?" the operator asked.

"I shot and killed my sons," Leteve is heard saying.

When Scottsdale police arrived at the home they found the boys deceased.

Friends of the family said Leteve and his wife were going through a "bitter" divorce.
