CADDO PARISH, La. -

Death by lethal injection, that's the sentence for Marcus Reed who is convicted of killing three brothers three years ago.

It was an emotional week for the Adams family as they sat in court and listened to the jury say Marcus Reed is guilty. Reed was then sentenced to death for killing their brothers, nephews or grandchildren depending on who you talk to.

The first person we spoke to was the victim's sister who gave a very emotional and brave interview as she had something to say to the man who killed her brothers.

Jacquel Adams: "I would like to say that I forgive you for taking my brothers lives and I can finally move on with my life and be able to sleep at night."

KTBS 3 Devon Patton: " What kind of thoughts came to your mind when you heard the verdict?"

Clara Adams Morgan: "My babies have gotten their justice. Justice has been done."

Members of the prosecuting team which included Dale Cox and Geya Prudhomme said that they were shocked that it took the jury less than 2 hours to make the decision to put 36 year-old Marcus Reed to death. Prosecutors say that is simply unheard of. Normally, it takes a longer time to make a decision when someone's life is hanging in the balance.
