Victims family members speak out after sentencing

CLEVELAND - An emotional moment in court turned heated when a family member of a murder victim charged at the accused killer in court Wednesday.

James Sparks Henderson, 20, pleaded guilty to five counts of murder for killing Sherita Johnson, 41, her unborn baby, Ja'rio Taylor, 19, Lemon Bryant, 60, and Shaylona Williams, 17, in November 2014. He was sentenced to life behind bars.

The five were shot and killed inside an E. 92nd Street home. Henderson was arrested for the crimes at a Lakewood McDonald's in May 2015.

During a plea hearing Wednesday, a relative to the victims charged at Henderson while giving a victim impact statement. He was removed from the court room.
