A Vietnam native convicted of murdering two brothers and dumping their bodies into the Schuylkill River has been sentenced to death.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports 44-year-old Tam Minh Le showed no reaction when the jury announced its decision Friday.

Last week, jurors found Le guilty on all counts in the deaths of 31-year-old Vu "Kevin" Huynh and his 28-year-old brother Viet.

Prosecutors allege Le tortured and stabbed the brothers in August 2014 along with another man over a $100,000 debt they owed him. All three were dumped into the Schuylkill River, their faces covered with duct tape and their legs weighted down with cement. One man survived.

Le's lawyer urged jurors to show mercy and to think of Le's children. The defense characterized Le as a scapegoat.
