He was convicted of multiple counts of murder and kidnapping, burglary and arson.

Prosecutors alleged that Wint, a former employee at a Savopoulos family business, broke into the family’s home on May 13, 2015 and held them hostage while demanding a $40,000 ransom, which Savvas Savopoulos delivered.

Wint brutally beat and stabbed the victims before dousing their bodies in gasoline and setting them on fire.
