UPDATED: Wednesday March 20, 2013 5:08 PM

School officials from a northeast Ohio district say they're relieved the case is over against a teen who shot and killed three students in a cafeteria in February 2012.
    
A Wednesday statement from Chardon schools said the sentencing of 18-year-old T.J. Lane allows families of the victims, students and the community to move on.
    
Lane was given three life sentences Tuesday for the killings at Chardon High School, east of Cleveland. He had pleaded guilty.

A prisons spokesman says Lane was moved Wednesday to Lorain Correctional Institution in Grafton for the orientation process. Officials will later determine which institution will house him long-term.
    
The school district says its thoughts and prayers remain with the victims and their families and that the sentencing allows everyone to take another step toward healing.
