Milwaukee man is guilty of killing 2 women, 2 kids

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A jury has found a 22-year-old man guilty of killing two children and two women in Milwaukee.

Desmond Laster and 24-year-old Anthony Barnes were accused of going with 19-year-old Brittney Robertson to her apartment and helping rob her roommate Rachel Thompson. According to the criminal complaint, Robertson stabbed Thompson and helped Laster suffocate Thompson’s 3- and 4-year-old sons on Feb. 26, 2010.

Robertson and Laster then allegedly set the apartment ablaze before taking Thompson’s 6-week-old son. Robertson later left him outside a church before Barnes allegedly shot her to death.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the prosecutor called Laster’s alibi preposterous during trial.

Barnes agreed to plead guilty in exchange for prosecutors’ recommendation of a sentence of 30 to 35 years.

  1. A real monster child killer, wow gets 4 life sentences big deal, it figures Wisconsin has some of the worst killers and carries no death penalty, soon all the worst homicidal murderers will go to all no death states cuz they can be extra heinous and only get life in prison, that is an incentive for all killers.

  2. Burn them alive.
