United States conspiracy theorist Alex Jones must pay the parents of a child killed in the Sandy Hook mass shooting at least $4.1 million (£3.3 million) for falsely claiming the massacre was a hoax, a Texas jury has said. The parents of a six-year-old boy killed in the primary school shooting had sought $150 million in compensation for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress. It is the first time the Infowars founder has been held financially liable for his repeated claims that the deadliest school shooting in US history was a hoax. • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/
