The bodies of the family were found inside their burned out mobile home in Dibble in 2010. That's when the victims' family began their pursuit of justice, one that is finally nearing an end.

"This is all we live for is to make sure they get justice and keep their memory alive," Ginger Griffin said.

Griffin fought through the tears to explain what it's been like for her family to endure two years of trial. She says it is all for one reason.

"Our children died, they didn't get a choice. They didn't get to live a life," she said.

Haunted by the murders of her stepdaughter Katrina Griffin and two children, 8-year-old Christian and 6-year-old Chasity, Griffin says she hoped Shaun Bosse would be given a death sentence for each life taken.

"That's all he deserves," she said.

On Tuesday morning, in McClain County Courtroom, the judge delivered the jury's recommendation sentencing Bosse to death.

"The death penalty is reserved for the worst of the worst and that's what Bosse was," McClain County District Attorney Greg Mashburn said.

Mashburn convinced the jury of Bosse's guilt just two months earlier.

"I believe justice was served and even though it's a somber moment, the right thing happened today," Mashburn said.

Prosecutors put on more than a week's worth of evidence to show Bosse killed the family in Dibble in 2010 and then set their trailer on fire to hide the evidence.

During the trial, the state indicated theft was the motivation for the crime that left the victim's family grieving such a loss.

"There will never be closure cause there will always be an empty place for them but this closes this chapter at least for them," Mashburn said.

A murder, which in a sense punishes more than the killer.

"Now we have nothing to bring us joy," Ginger Griffin explained.

In addition to three death sentences, the judge also upheld the jury's recommendation for a 35-year sentence for the arson conviction. Bosse's execution date is set for February 2013.
