Ammar Harris formally sentenced to death

Posted at 7:28 PM, Jan 04, 2016

Ammar Harris formally received a death sentence Monday.

It took a jury 2 1/2 hours back in November to decide that he will face the death penalty for the deaths of three people along the Las Vegas Strip back in 2013.

"This man is alive. He should be dead. It's the death penalty. Do it and quit playing. Talking about how much it costs... who cares how much it costs? What about the cost to my family?" asked Tehran Boldon, the brother of one of the victims.

Harris was convicted of firing into another car killing its driver and leading to a fiery crash.

The crash claimed the lives of a cab driver and his passenger. The cab driver's family was in the courtroom nearly every day of Harris' trial.
