Matthew Nicholson found guilty of double homicide facing possible death sentence

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - “I didn’t have the courage, I didn’t have the courage.”

Like many loving mothers Matthew Nicholson’s mom blames herself for how he turned out.

Nicholson was found guilty of shooting and killing his then-girlfriend’s two children, Manuel and Giselle, right in front of her at their home in Garfield Heights in September 2018.

“I feel like it’s my fault that my son is here. I feel like I could have stopped it. I feel like I didn’t do enough. I didn’t do enough to help him. He didn’t ask to be in this environment...” his mother said.

Judge Timothy McCormick is delaying some of the expert witnesses till Thursday. Court proceedings pick up again around 9 a.m.
