NJ man convicted of killing 3 women, attempted murder of 4th

A New Jersey man charged in the murders of three women and the attempted murder of a fourth has been convicted on all counts

A New Jersey man charged in the murders of three women and the attempted murder of a fourth was convicted on all counts.

An Essex County jury deliberated for just two hours Thursday before convicting Khalil Wheeler-Weaver, who now faces a potential sentence of life plus 80 years in prison.

Prosecutors said Wheeler-Weaver, 23, of Orange, killed 20-year-old Sarah Butler, 33-year-old Joanne Brown and 19-year-old Robin West in 2016. They also accuse him of trying to kill another woman that year.

Wheeler-Weaver's public defenders confirmed that their client had arranged sexual encounters with the women but said he dropped them off safely at the end of each one and didn't harm anyone.
