A Richmond County jury has sentenced a man to death for the killings of three people in Augusta in 2008.

The sentence for 36 year old Adrian Hargrove was issued yesterday at the conclusion of a lengthy trial.

The jury decided Hargrove will be put to death for the murders of 18 year old Allyson Pederson and her parents, Sharon and Andrew Hartley.

Prosecutors say Pederson, who was pregnant, and the Hartleys were repeatedly stabbed with a butcher knife and beaten by Hargrove.
