ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Five years after six Hispanic men were murdered during an overnight home invasion spree in Tift County, closure finally came in the case when Stacey Bernard Sims was sentenced to spend the rest of his natural life in prison.

Friday, Stacey Sims received six life sentences for crimes that began in the early morning hours of September 30th 2005.

Sims and Jamie Underwood targeted three mobile home parks in Tift County and a home in Colquitt County where they sexually assaulted a woman and shot her husband.

"It was an astounding brutality because they shot one guy to death and beat five to death," said GBI Agent, Mike Lewis. "It was extremely brutal. Extremely bloody."

In December of 2008, the judge sentenced the other defendant, Jaime Underwood, to serve 120 years in prison without parole.
