November 20, 2019

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man has been convicted of killing the mother of his child and her three children.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports that 41-year-old Henry Segura was found guilty Tuesday of first-degree murder. Jurors will return to recommend life in prison or the death penalty.

Prosecutors say Segura killed Brandi Peters, her twin 6-year-old daughters, Tamiyah and Taniyah Peters and the couple’s own 3-year-old son, JaVonte Segura, at a Tallahassee home in November 2010. Officials say Henry Segura was angry about $20,000 in back child support he owed Peters.

Prosecutors showed that cell phone location data and DNA connected Segura to the crime.
