A jury deliberated less than a half an hour before finding Michael Ivory Collins guilty of a triple murder in which he sawed two children’s heads off in front of their mother before killing her, as reported by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
According to prosecutors, Collins with with half-brother William Burnell Alexander in December 2017 with the intent to commit the murders.
Alexander held Cunningham down while Collins brutally murdered her two children, stabbing A’Laylaih Fisher, 5, more than 20 times before attempting to saw off her head. He then moved on to 4-year-old Elijah Fisher, stabbing and decapitating him as well.
Cunningham was forced to watch the brutal murders before the two men stabbed her to death and then left.
