    He drove away after being stopped and, after running several stoplights, crashed into the car carrying David Bianco, his fiancée, Kaylie Meininger, and their 2-year-old daughter, Annika

    While the verdict was read, the victims' immediate family members and relatives cried softly, wiping away tears.

    Coleman is now facing the possibility of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

    “He didn’t say a word he just kind of took it, he knew it was a possibility," Coleman's attorney Brent McCune said.
