An Ohio serial killer appeared emotionless as he was sentenced to death on Friday for murdering a woman who was a family friend, along with her two adult daughters.
George Brinkman, Jr. pleaded guilty in November to killing 42-year-old Suzanne Taylor, 21-year-old Taylor Pifer and 18-year-old Kylie Pifer at their home outside of Cleveland in June of 2017.
Court records obtained by Cleveland 19 News revealed Brinkman slit the mother's throat, smothered Taylor and strangled Kylie to death with a telephone chord.
Brinkman, 46, is not expected to appeal the decision, his attorneys said at the sentencing hearing before a a three-judge panel.
His execution has been set for January 15, 2020.
Brinkman has outstanding charges in Stark County for allegedly fatally shooting a couple at their Lake Township home where he was house-sitting just says after he killed Taylor and her two daughters.
he bodies of Suzanne, Taylor and Kylie were found on June 11, 2017, by Taylor's boyfriend, who called Suzanne's boyfriend, Scott Plymale, who alerted authorities to their deaths.
The two men hadn't had contact with them since the day before, on June 10, when Taylor's boyfriend and Plymale had each talked to their significant others.
The women's bodies were cold to the touch, 'face down in bed all lying right next to one another,' according to a police report obtained by Cleveland 19.
Plymale said he believed he was at the women's home when Brinkman was there on June 10, but he didn't go inside.
He said he spoke to Suzanne on the phone at around 3pm, and then stopped by her home in North Royalton at around 4.30pm.
He went there to give Suzanne flowers that he ended up leaving on the doorstep, and noticed Brinkman's van parked outside but the door was locked.
Plymale said he suspected Brinkman may have murdered his girlfriend Suzanne out of jealousy, and didn't think the young women had anything to do with the heinous crime.
'Susie always told me that George would always ask her "How do I get a girl like you?"' Plymale told Cleveland 19 days after the women's bodies were found, speaking through tear-strained eyes.
Plymale said his lover's relationship with family friend Brinkman began to deteriorate as their romance progressed.
Brinkman was taken into custody after a nine-hour standoff on June 12 at a home in Brunswick, CBS reported.
Though he seemed unmoved at his sentencing on Friday and while informing the judge he did not plan to appeal, Brinkman was tearful at his initial arraignment on the charges on June 15, 2017, Cleveland.com reported.
At the time of his daughters' deaths, Brian Pifer issued a statement to the news site.
'We have all suffered a great loss. Taylor and Kylie were deeply loved - not only by me, but by our families and so many friends,' Brian said on June 12, 2017.
'We are absolutely devastated. Taylor and Kylie were beautiful, strong, intelligent young women.'
Brinkman is also accused of killing married couple 71-year-old Rogell 'Gene' and Roberta 'Bobbi' John, 64, with a gun during an alleged robbery. Their bodies were found on June 12, 2017, the same day Brinkman was taken into custody for the triple murder in Cleveland.
The couple was found by their son, the Canton Repository reported.
Brinkman was indicted on aggravated murder charges in connection with the deaths of the Johns in Stark County court on November 14.
He has not yet been arraigned on those charges, a court clerk told DailyMail.com.
