Craig Hicks given three life sentences for murders of three Muslim students

Today a small moment of justice was brought to the Durham County Courthouse as Craig Hicks was handed a ruling of three consecutive life sentences in prison for the murders of three Muslim college students in 2015. Family members that were present at the sentencing offered their words and sentiments about the lives that were lost on that February night. The families of Deah, Yusor and Razan also reclaimed the narrative of their murder, with additional evidence being presented that removed false claims and presumptions about the nature of how the crime occurred.
