LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Mason’s Sisk was found guilty of four counts of capital murder after closing arguments in the trial wrapped up Thursday morning after seven days of witness testimony.

The verdict came just before 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon.

In the State’s closing argument, district attorney Brian Jones urged jurors to use common sense and convict Sisk.

The Defense pleaded with the jury to examine all the evidence and see that there is reasonable doubt that Sisk committed the crime.

Following the closing arguments, jurors were dismissed for lunch just before noon and will begin deliberation when court resumes at approximately 1:00 p.m.

Both the State and Defense rested their cases on April 26 after the State called 31 witnesses to the stand and the Defense called none.

On the final day of testimony, jurors heard from state witness investigator Johnny Morrell. This testimony included discussion around Mary Sisk’s cell phone, the interview with Mason the night of the crime, and Mason’s confession to the crime.

The confession in the video came after an already long line of questioning by former Sheriff Mike Blakely. In the video, Sisk denied killing his family multiple times, while Blakely accused him of lying.

Sisk is charged with killing five family members in September 2019, he was 14 at the time.

His first trial in the fall of 2022 was declared a mistrial after prosecutors informed the court that FBI computer experts had finally unlocked Sisk’s adoptive mother’s phone.
