Father convicted of killing 4 children in KentuckyBy The Associated Press
A Somali immigrant has been convicted on all counts of killing his four children and raping and trying to kill his wife.
Jefferson County Circuit Judge James Shake took about 20 minutes Friday to reach the verdict against Said Biyad (sy-EED' bee-YAHD). Sentencing is set for June 9. He could get life without parole.
Biyad was accused of killing his four children - ages 2 through 8 - by slitting their throats in 2006 following an argument with his wife.
Biyad had claimed that his children were killed by three men demanding money. He also argued that an impostor claiming to be him confessed to the police.
His attorney argued that Biyad suffered mental illness and wasn't criminally responsible for his actions.
