Brothers given 14-year sentences

Social Share

Drug use is the one thread that seems to run through the majority of cases before the courts, Justice Randall Worrell said yesterday.

He made the comment as he sentenced brothers Antonio Renaldo Devere Atwell, then 19 and now 25, and Arlond Elroy Atwell, then 22 now 28, both of Culvert Terrace, Haynesville, St James, to 14 years in jail for unlawfully killing Travis Austin, formerly of Prior Park, St James, on February 4, 2014.

They were originally charged with murdering Austin but pleaded not guilty to that offence.

The two were represented by attorney Safiya Moore, while Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Alliston Seale appeared for the Crown. (HLE)
