Carnes' attorney says she will appeal the conviction. Chris Viera's mother, Elizabeth Perez-Barani said of the conviction, "I'm glad justice was done. The only way to stop murder in Boston is to get justice done".
Just over a week ago, Carnes was sentenced to four life sentences without the possibility of parole. It is justice, but it does not bring back the lives lost. Chris Mitchell, a friend of Chris Viera and Jihad Chankhour, has been visiting their graves for the past two years. He says that death has not broken the bond they shared; he goes by there to talk about work, movies, music, and life. "I go there and talk with them, just like I always did". They are like "my two brothers".
