S. Ellis in Alexandria, Virginia, after gut-wrenching statements in court from family members of victims.
  • Before Kotey’s sentencing, 12 family members of the victims and two former hostages of the group gave gut-wrenching statements in court of their loss and continued struggles in the wake of the tragedy – at times speaking directly to Kotey and his co-defendant El Shafee Elsheikh, who had been convicted by a jury in the same courtroom weeks earlier.
  • … Will I ever be normal again?” “Open your eyes and look at me,” Shirley Sotloff, the mother of American journalist Steven Sotloff, who was held hostage by the group and eventually executed on video, told Elsheikh, who sat across the courtroom.
  • Dragana Haines, the wife of David Haines, a British aid worker who was taken hostage and killed by ISIS, told Kotey and Elsheikh she hoped they lived to be 200 years old so they could watch their own family members die.
