Brett Parker Sentenced to Life
(WOLO) COLUMBIA,S.C., --
There were three weeks of testimony and evidence presented to the jury, but it only took them about 3 hours to comb through it all to come to a unanimous guilty verdict.
The crowd erupting into gasps when the verdict was read, some hugging, others crying, including Brett Parker's teenage daughter who cried for several minutes after.
While the courtroom was filled with emotion, the one person who showed the least of it, was Brett Parker himself. Not looking at family members of his victim's, wife Tammie Jo Parker and his former business partner, Brian Capnerhurst. Only turning around one time to tell his daughter, "don't believe what you've just heard" .
Parker's defense team has ten days to appeal the courts decision.
