The final chapter in one of the Capital Region's most horrific murder cases was on Wednesday afternoon. It's a sentencing in a 2017 quadruple murder in Lansingburgh that involved two kids.

James White was sentenced to life without parole, which was expected.

At the sentencing, Judge Debra Young called White "devious and monstrous."

Details of the crime for which he was convicted are horrific, brutal and inhumane.

White and his accomplice, Justin Mann, broke into a Lansingburgh apartment Christmas week of 2017.

Inside, they tied up, tortured and murdered two women and two children.

Last week, after having testified against his co-defendant, Mann was sentenced to 25 years to life with the possibility of parole.

White told the judge, "I have no remorse, because I did nothing wrong."
