(WBIR) A man charged with killing three women in a Powell apartment has been found guilty.

A jury found Paul Clifford Moore guilty of three counts of second degree murder in the May 2012 shooting deaths of his wife, Christina Moore, her twin sister, Bridgette Stagnolia, and Amber Snellings.

The verdict was announced Saturday afternoon, less than 24 hours after the jury began their deliberations.

"We found out that the justice system works," said Alan McFarland, Chrisina Moore and Bridgette Stagnolia's stepfather. "This jury proved it. It's not permissible because you have something in your life that it is not permissible to take three lives."

Snellings' family had concerns while awaiting the verdict.

"In the back of our minds, we were a little worried it would be something less than first or second degree murder, but the jury really worked hard on this case and came through," said Amber Snellings's first cousin Jonathan Snellings.

Sentencing is scheduled for March 6.
