A Texas man’s dying sentence in a brutal triple homicide that claimed a four-year-old baby among the many victims was met with approval by surviving members of the family.
“Oh, we’re happy,” Frances Rivera, the mom of 24-year-old Maya Rivera, who was murdered together with 28-year-old Ray Shawn Hudson Sr. and their four-year-old son, Ray Shawn Hudson Jr., in 2018, told Fox 26 Houston this week.
“This is for baby Ray. All of this is for baby Ray.”
It solely took 5 hours for a jury to convict the suspect within the murders, 40-year-old Robert Allen Satterfield, of capital homicide, and one other 45 minutes to conclude that he deserved the dying sentence.

“He won’t be able to touch his children, or hug his children the way we’re not able to hug and touch our children,” Rivera stated. “He won’t be able to do that either. If he stays on death row five years, 10 years, or 30 years from now, we know he’s not going to be able to enjoy life.”
Satterfield murdered the household and burned their our bodies in a pit. He was taken in by authorities days later after being pulled over whereas driving the automotive he had stolen from them.

“They were put in a pit like trash. It was very heartbreaking to see the actual burn pit and what they had to go through,” Rivera stated. “Baby Ray saw his mother being shot. The only reason he killed baby Ray was because he could identify him.”
Wharton County District Attorney Dawn Allison informed Fox 26 Houston that Satterfield was a routine offender with gang affiliations who confirmed no regret for the crime and confirmed indicators of paranoia.

“He felt like he was being disrespected by them. It could have been robbery, it could have been over the sake of a gun,” Allison stated.
