A twenty four-year old man from the village of Florida in St. John’s, who was charged with the fatal stabbing of his twenty-seven-year-old brother in the village of Constantine in St George’s in 2014, has been sentenced to seven years and six months in prison.
High Court Judge Shiraz Aziz presiding over a sentencing hearing at the number one High Court in St. Georges on Tuesday, had the sentence handed down on Paul Chetram almost three years after the stabbing incident that lead to the death of his brother Delon Henry
According to information circulating at the time, Henry died after he was stabbed several times in the neck. The two brothers it was said were involved in a heated argument that subsequently lead to some physical confrontation between both men.
Meanwhile during Tuesday ‘s hearing Chetram who was represented in court by defense lawyer Sabina Gibbs was also ordered to undergo anger management treatment for two years, during which time there would be periodic evaluation as it relates to progress made.
The court also took into consideration during sentencing, time spent on remand, which amounts to just over three years and therefore that would determine the length of time Chetram would now spend in prison.
