LINCOLN COUNTY, Tenn. (WHNT) - A Lincoln County judge sentenced Zakkawanda Moss to six consecutive life terms on Tuesday.  Moss was convicted of killing six people in 2012.

"Words cannot describe some of the things I’ve seen in this trial," said Judge Forest Durard.  "These killings were senseless and barbaric as I’ve ever seen."

Judge Durard listened to testimony from several people, including family members of the victims.

A jury convicted Moss in the deaths of Amber McCaulley, Chabreya Campbell and her unborn child, Rashad Rico Ragland, as well as Warren Crutcher and Jessica Brown. The murders happened in October of 2012.

Immediately after Judge Durard issued the sentence, Moss' attorney, Hershel Koger, asked for a new trial for his client.  The judge set a hearing for March 4 to review the matter.

Another man, Henry Burrell, is scheduled to stand trial in February for the six murders.
