A Georgia man didn’t want his law enforcement wife to discover the “extent of his lying and cheating,” so he shot and killed her and her brother in a planned ambush and failed coverup effort. He was recently convicted for those crimes, authorities announced.

Jaquavia Jackson, 30, was found guilty by a jury of his peers on two counts each of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during a felony, on Friday, the Newton County District Attorney’s Office announced in a press release.

“A daughter and a son were taken from a family in one horrific, premeditated incident,” Newton County District Attorney Randy McGinley said in a statement. “Nothing can ever make up for the tremendous loss of Shakeema and Levoy. But this verdict holds the person responsible that took them from their family.”
