LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The Kentucky Supreme Court has upheld the conviction of a Somali man convicted of killing his four children in Louisville.

The court found that the judge in Said Biyad's case did not make an error in how he handled claims of insanity. Biyad was convicted by the judge in 2011 and he was sentenced to life in prison.

Biyad killed his children, who were two through eight-years-old,  in October 2006 after an argument with his wife who was also attacked.

His attorneys argued prosecutors had to disprove his claim of insanity but the supreme court said that was not required.
