Convicted triple murderer, Max Sica will be sentenced today for killing his Fiji-born girlfriend and her siblings.

After the longest-running murder trial in Queensland's history, on Tuesday the 42-year-old was convicted of murdering Neelma Singh, 24, her brother Kunal, 18, and sister Sidhi, 12, in Brisbane's north in 2003.

Sica proclaimed his innocence and described the Queensland justice system as corrupt after the jury delivered their verdict on Tuesday.

The murdered sibling’s parents are expected to be at the Supreme Court today when Justice John Byrne hands down his sentence.

Prosecutors are today expected to ask that he serve a minimum non-parole period of 45 years, although it is likely Sica will face a shorter term than that.

Sica’s lawyers are expected to appeal.
