Baton Rouge man convicted in 3 shooting deaths

An East Baton Rouge Parish jury convicted a 24-year-old Baton Rouge man on three counts of first-degree murder after deliberating for about 90 minutes.
Courtney Williams stood emotionless inside state District Judge Richard Anderson's courtroom Thursday night as a jury of six women and six men convicted him in the killing of 19-year-old Clarissa Cobbing, 18-year-old Britney Lee and 76-year-old Josephine Lathers in September 2011.
The Advocate reports Williams was Cobbing's former boyfriend. Lathers was Lee's great-grandmother.
Anderson sentences Williams to life in prison on March 28.
