Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge Scott Krichbaum handed down the maximum sentence to Terrance Edmonds, 32, was convicted on four counts of attempted murder, felonious assault, domestic violence, and a weapons violation.

Edmonds was arrested in July after authorities found 32-year-old Denise Thurston slumped over in the driver's seat of a car on Hilton Avenue.

Thurston, the mother of two children, survived after undergoing surgery for a gunshot wound to the head.

Thurston's sister, Carla Hunt, said it was hard sitting through the trial and described Thurston's condition.

"It was just horrible throughout the whole thing. She'll never get better. She'll end up dying from this. She's brain dead," Hunt said.

Hunt told 21 News this situation didn't just affect her and her family but also Edmonds' as well.

If Thurston passes away, Edmonds could get an indictment for murder.
