He was convicted of murder on all six counts after a seven-member jury handed down a unanimous verdict on March 6.
He was convicted of killing his former girlfriend Terry-Ann Mohammed, her son Jessie O’Gilvie, 9, her niece – Patrice Martin-McCool and her children, Lloyd McCool, 3, Jihad McCool, 6, and Sean Chin, 9, in the eastern parish on February 25, 2006.
