William Hudson, convicted last week in connection with the deaths of six people at an East Texas campsite in 2015, was sentenced to death for his crimes. A Brazos County jury sentenced him to the death penalty.
Last Tuesday, he was found guilty on multiple counts of capital murder, in relation to the deaths of Hannah Johnson, her father Carl Johnson, her son Kade, as well as her boyfriend Thomas Kamp and his two sons Nathan and Austin.
After the sentences, family members read victim impact statements. Thomas Kamps’s uncle, Steve Woodruff said to Hudson that all six promising lives were “vanished in an instant by you.”
Kamp’s step-sister said that the family will move forward, while Hudson remains behind bars.

Hudson has the right to appeal the sentence.
Last week, Lisa Tanner, with the Attorney General's office, said to jurors this case was always about the punishment not about whether Hudson committed the crimes.
