NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Queens District Attorney Richard Brown praised three juries Friday for returning guilty verdicts in separate murder trials within hours of each other.

Brown said “I can’t remember a day when so many juries have spoken so loudly, so clearly and in unison about their abhorrence for the senseless killing of other human beings,” WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported.

Damel Burton was convicted in a deadly shooting rampage that took the life of an 18-year-old in an apartment building and injured two other victims on a city bus.

Muhammad Iqbal was convicted of strangling his longtime girlfriend with an extension cord and dumping her body next to the Montefiore Cemetery, Cornell reported.

Kareem Richardson was playing a dice game at a back room of a barber shop when he killed one of the players and shot another in the nose.

All three men could face life in prison when they are sentenced.

Meanwhile, Rasheen Everett, who was convicted of killing a transgender woman in 2010, was sentenced to 29 years to life, Cornell reported.
