Man Convicted Of Murder For Throwing Kids Off Bridge

A jury has convicted a man of murdering four young children who were thrown to their deaths from an Alabama bridge last year in Alabama.

The jury deliberated for only about 40 minutes in Mobile on Thursday before convicting Lam Luong of murder. The defendant, who came to the United States from Vietnam as a teenager, declined an opportunity to address the court and presented no defense witnesses at trial.

Prosecutors say the man threw the four children from an 80-foot-high span of a coastal bridge after an argument with his wife. Three of the children were his and the fourth was his wife's with another man.

The jury is expected to return Friday to make a recommendation of death or life without parole in the penalty phase.

    I remember when this happened. It is about time. He killed his own children. He should get his just desserts.
