The victim's sister spoke out in court before the sentencing vocalizing her hate toward Stevenson.

"It's not fair that Mr. Stevenson is allowed to breathe and my sister can not. I loved David Stevenson as a brother-in-law but, I feel hate toward him for the day he chose to take the life of a mother and sister," says Deiodta Haughton.

All four of Haughton's children are now living with their aunt, including a child that Stevenson fathered.

Stevenson's attorney expressed his condolences to the victim's family, but said he is considering filing an appeal.
