Convicted child killer Tim Jones sentenced to death

Convicted child killer Tim Jones has been sentenced to death.
A Lexington jury came back with the sentence after a unanimous vote Thursday.

The jury deliberated less than two hours before the sentence was announced between 3 p.m. and 3:15 p.m.

Last week, Jones, 37, was found guilty of five counts of murder. He killed his five children in August 2014.

The children killed were Merah, 8; Elias, 7; Nahtahn, 6; Gabriel, 2; and Abagail Elaine, 1 in Lexington County.
