COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Sentencing for Cassinova Houston was passed to December 14th in Muscogee County Superior Court Monday morning.

Early November of last year, Houston pled guilty to a host of charges, including four counts of murder, 18 counts to aggravated assault and 10 counts of robbery.

The charges stemmed from crimes that targeted the Hispanic community including several home invasions.

One of the home invasions ended in the murders of 45-year-old Marcello Rivera and 15-year old Isaias Bartolon in April of 2007.
