UPDATE: Nicholas Sheley declined to make a statement after victim impact statements were delivered on Monday morning.

He was sentenced to four consecutive life sentences without possibility of parole.

ORIGINAL: Now convicted of killing six people in the greater Quad Cities Area, 34-year-old Nicholas Sheley will be sentenced Monday for four of the murders.

The victims are 25-year-old Kenneth Ulve, 29-year-old Brock Branson, 20-year-old Kilynna Blake and her 2-year-old son Dayan.

All four were beaten to death with a hammer in a Rock Falls apartment in June 2008.

Police say drugs and alcohol played a role in the killings and prosecutors allege Branson was having an affair with Sheley's wife at the time.

In a trial for the murders this past May, a jury found Sheley guilty of first degree murder on four counts.

Family members of the victims went to the trial and cried and hugged each other as the verdict was read.

Meantime – Sheley is already serving life sentences for the murders of 93-year-old Russell Reed of Sterling and 65-year-old Ronald Randall in Galesburg.

After Monday's sentencing, Sheley faces trial in the murders of an Arkansas couple, Jill and Tom Estes, killed while traveling in Missouri.

All eight murders happened within days of each other.

Monday's sentencing is set for 11 a.m. This story will be updated with more details after the sentencing.
