NJ man convicted of killing 3 women, attempted murder of 4th
(AP) - A New Jersey man charged in the murders of three women and the attempted murder of a fourth has been convicted on all counts.
An Essex County jury deliberated for just two hours Thursday before convicting Khalil Wheeler-Weaver. He now faces a potential sentence of life plus 80 years in prison.
The killings and the attempted murder all happened in 2016.
Wheeler-Weaver's public defenders confirmed that their client had arranged sexual encounters with the women but said he dropped them off safely at the end of each one and didn't harm anyone.
