(CINCINNATI) -- The man accused of killing his girlfriend's 3-year-old son has been found guilty.

A three-judge panel found Lamont Hunter guilty of all charges in the murder of Trustin Blue. Those charges include aggravated murder, rape and child endangerment.

FOX 19's Sara Gouedy reports that the courtroom was intense in the moments before the verdict was read. Many of Hunter's family members began to yell and cry after the first count was read as guilty.

Hunter's first sentencing hearing will take place in front of the same three-judge panel on June 19. He will either receive the death penalty, life in prison without the possibility of parole, life in prison with the possibility of parole in 30 years or life in prison with the possibility of parole in 25 years.
