father convicted of throwing kids off bridge

Remember this crazy story from last year, about the father who threw his kids off a bridge? Yesterday in Alabama, after deliberating for only 45 minutes, a jury convicted Lam Luong on five counts of capital murder: Jury convicts Alabama dad of throwing 4 kids off bridge.

Luong admitted to throwing the children, who ranged in age from 3 years to 4 months, off the Dauphin Island bridge. During opening arguments in the trial, prosecutors told jurors Luong threw the kids off the bridge "so he could see the look on his wife's face." He was apparently on crack at the time.

The sentencing phase of Luong's trial begins today. Jurors will decide whether he should receive the death penalty or life in prison without parole. I don't know what kind of man would do such a thing. It's sickening, and I hope the guy goes away for a long time. More here: Man guilty of murder for tossing 4 kids off bridge.
