Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — An Islamic extremist was given 10 life sentences and another 260 years in prison for killing eight people with a truck on a bike path in Manhattan. The judge called his crime among the worst, if not the worst he’d seen. Federal Judge Vernon S. Broderick announced the sentence Wednesday after Sayfullo Saipov spoke.

In March, a jury rejected the death penalty for the Uzbekistan citizen and onetime New Jersey resident.
