The Chicago Sun-Times reported Cook County Circuit Judge Steve Goebel on Friday told Ybarra that it was impossible for him to be rehabilitated.

Six months before the slayings, Ybarra was acquitted of a 2005 fatal shooting that killed a 19-year-old man at the same intersection.

Ybarra's co-defendant in the 2009 shooting, Geovanni Lopez, was acquitted in a bench trial before Goebel in May.
