BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - 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.

Williams was Cobbing's former boyfriend. Lathers was Lee's great-grandmother.

Anderson sentences Williams to life in prison on March 28.
