A Talladega County man who was convicted of capital murder has been sentenced to death.
Circuit Judge Bo Hollingsworth sentenced Wakilii Brown, 32, to die by lethal injection for the murders of his girlfriend, Cherae Jemison, 26, and her mother, Dotty Jemison, 49.
Brown has continued to maintain his innocence and told the court he wasn’t guilty before he was sentenced Monday.
Talladega County District Attorney Steve Giddens said he was pleased with the sentence although some of the victims’ family members asked the judge that Brown be given life without parole.
Brown’s attorneys said they plan to appeal.
Brown was convicted of beating the women to death at the home they all shared in Sylacauga in March 2001. The women were struck multiple times in the head with what appeared to be a hammer.
