BRYAN, Texas (AP) — A man has been sentenced to death for the slayings of six people in 2015 at a remote East Texas campsite.

The Eagle of Bryan-College Station reports that a Brazos County jury deliberated about 45 minutes Wednesday before deciding 35-year-old William Hudson should face execution. The same jury found him guilty last week on three counts of capital murder for the shooting and beating deaths of 77-year-old Carl Johnson, 40-year-old Hannah Johnson, 45-year-old Thomas Kamp, 23-year-old Nathan Kamp, 21-year-old Austin Kamp and 6-year-old Kade Johnson.

Evidence showed the victims were part of a blended family that gathered for a weekend together to camp on Tennessee Colony property they had recently bought from Hudson’s family. Prosecutors said Hudson resented the sale.

One member of the victims’ family was able to hide and survived.
