    From August 2014:


    All of the victims were Japanese, including an eight-month-old baby and three-year-old toddler who both survived. The toddler's mother Rie Sugiyama, 29, died as she desperately tried to shield her daughter from the knifeman.

    Another relative, 81-year-old Kazuko Uehara, also died. They had been in Guam for a family wedding.

    Hitoshi Yokota, 51, died from injuries sustained when De Soto's car crashed into him.
    From September 2014:


    A Guam man convicted of killing three Japanese tourists last year when he rammed his car into a group of pedestrians and then began stabbing bystanders was sentenced Thursday to life in prison.

    Guam Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola sentenced 22-year-old Chad DeSoto to three life sentences to be served concurrently. De Soto will be ineligible for parole, Sukola said.
