In case you didn't catch the news on the main Web site or in the paper, the court cases on the watchlist were all resolved Thursday.
First, Albert and Ashley Debelbot were both found guilty of murder and cruelty to children in the death of their 3-day-old daughter, McKenzy. It took jurors about three hours to convict and both got life in prison.
Behind the scenes: Ashley Debelbot broke down after the verdict was read and began wailing. The way it was described to me, if you were within earshot, you knew something was going on.
Also on Thursday's court plate, Raimone Boynton, Richard Boynton and Ladarious Colbert all got hefty sentences for armed robbery, aggravated assault and a number of other charges. Raimone Boynton got life, Richard Boynton got 25 years and Colbert got 13 years.
Behind the scenes: Before the sentencing, a man's voice could be heard, loudly, in the hallway. Several supporters of the defendants got out of their seats and started moving toward the noise but deputies shouted them back into their seats.
They sat back down, some of them smirking.
