Burrell pleaded guilty to six counts of murder for the deaths of Amber McCaulley, Chabreya Campbell and her unborn child, Rashad Rico Ragland, as well as Warren Crutcher and Jessica Brown. They were killed in October of 2012.

“I just want to get it over with,” Burrell told Judge Forest Durard in court on January 22, 2014.

“You understand you will never walk the streets again,” Durard said.

“Yes sir,” Burrell replied.

Burrell is serving two consecutive life terms.

The other man charged in the case, Zakkawanda Moss, stood trial and was convicted. He was sentenced to six life terms in prison.
