Theresa Robinovitz, the grandmother of victim Alyssa Alhadeff, who was among the victims in the 2018 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, told the killer: “I’m too old to see you live out your life sentence, but I hope your ever-breathing moment here on earth is miserable and you repent for your sins Nikolas and burn in hell.”
David Robinovitz, the slain 14-year-old’s grandfather, refused to address Cruz by his name during his statement, only calling him “Parkland murderer”.
He said: “Parkland murderer, there’s going to come a day – it could be a week from now, it could be a month from now, it could be 40 years from now – you are going to die.
“When you die, it is my fondest hope that they take you and burn you and take your ashes and throw them in the garbage dump.
“You know why? Because garbage to garbage. And at that time Parkland murderer it is my hope that you go somewhere to meet your maker of whatever it is and Parkland murderer I hope your maker sends you directly to hell to burn for the rest of your eternity.”
Cruz mostly stared forward when shown on camera during the victim’s statements.
