COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The man convicted of killing his wife and children with a bush ax will learn his sentence next month.
News Leader 9 has learned a sentencing hearing date has been set for convicted murderer Michael Curry.
He will reappear in court July 21st to learn his fate.
Curry was found guilty in April of murdering his pregnant wife and two young children with a bush-ax in 1985.
His 24-year-old wife Ann was struck with the bush ax across her throat. She was nearly decapitated and also had a blow to her head. His son, 20-month-old Ryan, was found near his mother's in the living room. He was struck in the head with the blade and was gripping the shag carpet when he was found. His daughter, 4-year-old Erika, was struck with the ax in the head and mouth. Her palate and teeth and glasses were found scattered across the kitchen floor.
He was not charged with the murders until 2009, after the cold case had been reopened by the Columbus Police Department.
