The verdict was guilty, and he was sentenced to death by hanging. Judge Melville B. Gerry pronounced sentence saying, "...There was siven Dimmycrats in Hinsdale County! But you, yah voracious, main-eatin son of a bitch, yah et five of them, therefor I sentence ye T' be hanged by the neck until y're dead, dead, dead!"
