A judge sentenced Alfred Dupree, 19, and Victoria McCurley, 18, to each serve 40 years in prison, with 20 to serve for their deadly plot to kill their classmates, WSB-TV reported. The pair was arrested in October 2017 after police were tipped off about their elaborate plan — which included a “kill list,” a journal and a map. Alfred Dupree and Victoria McCurley were arrested and charged in 2017 for planning to carry out a deadly mass shooting at their Georgia high school. (WSB-TV / video screenshot) Prosecutors said the teens were looking to set a record for mass murder and created a kill list expressing intent on murdering Black students. A journal in which the list was found, and that was turned over to investigators, also included swastikas and slurs for disabled people.

The pair appeared before a Cherokee County superior judge last Friday and pleaded guilty to multiple charges, including conspiracy to commit murder and unlawful possession of a destructive device, court papers show. Both teens faced up to 90 years in prison for their crimes. Dupree and McCurley had studied mass shootings in the past, prosecutors said. In court Friday, McCurley admitted they hoped to “get our numbers up higher than Las Vegas,” referencing the 2017 music festival massacre that left 58 people dead and hundreds others wounded.

Dupree’s aunt, Amy Dupree Adams, spoke Monday during day two of her nephew’s sentencing hearing. Adams said she partially blamed herself for Dupree’s behavior, and brought up his wavering mental state and autism diagnosis. “I kept waiting for this magical 18th birthday where he was going to be grown and mature and these things were going to go away,” she said, as reported by WSB-TV. “We’re dealing with somebody that needs care, that needs help, that needs more than what I thought.” ALSO READ Usain Bolt Says Sex Affected His Football PerformanceThe duo faced charges as a team for “collecting and preparing flammable and explosive materials, writing a ‘kill list’… (and) creating a map of a portion of Etowah High School,” according to the indictment. Their kill list included the names of five students, all of whom were in a special education class with Dupree and McCurley, and one teacher. A defense lawyer for one of the teens said the pair bounced back and forth between considering their plot a “fantasy” until it escalated into something they seriously planned to carry out. Had their plan not been foiled, police believe Dupree and McCurley would’ve gone through with the attack. Watch more in the video below.
