(Cedar Rapids, IA) -- After six hours of deliberations, a Linn County jury has a verdict in a Cedar Rapids triple murder case.
The jury found Alex Jackson guilty on three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of his mother Melissa, his father Jan, and his sister Sabrina in 2021.
Jackson claimed someone broke into the home, killed his family, and shot him in the foot. Investigators say there’s no evidence of a break-in.
The prosecution and defense presented closing arguments in Jackson’s trial yesterday.
Jackson will receive a mandatory sentence of life in prison at a later date.
