his lawyer just leaned over and said to Merritt "It's Okay"
Finally! Joey, Summer, Gianni and Joseph, you may now rest in peace.
Guilty on all counts!
With “special circumstances.”
Not a surprise (for me), but great to have this over with.
Justice is served.
CM appears upset, kept his hands folded on the table in front of him and was closing his eyes for much of the verdict being read. He is still holding his eyes closed every few moments even as the Judge speaks now.

I am so relieved for the family.
same face as whole trial
Me too. So annoying!
Yes,yes,yes....a million times yes!!
I am NOT - NOT surprised.
The Defense did a great job ... and PT worked on "emotions" ... and the jury fell for it.
I hope the Innocence Project takes this case on ASAP.
All JMO and MOO !
CM Watching polling of jury
Congragulations Leomoon, You said right from the beginning he killed them. And we all agree.
It will take 30 years at least to execute him, but he'll sit in a single cell in San Quentin for the duration.
Jury’s verdict in McStay murder case to be released Monday
It took her a long time, but Lady Justice finally came to the McStays.
God bless them. God bless the jury.
He started to look nervous and pale when they seated after the jury came in. He looks really pale and distant now. No tears, no dramatic actions like head in hands. Just looking down sometimes and closing eyes for awhile.
All jurors were just polled on all charges and they all voted as yes this is their verdict
Looks crushed. His defense attorney looked close to tears.
He has been found guilty as he is guilty.
The families can now try and find some peace that their loved ones got justice.
He looked devastated. Like anyone would be hearing those verdicts against them.
They do proceed to sentencing.
