An air of callousness.

That was how Justice Randall Worrell described the actions of killer Mark Stevenson Headley just before he sentenced him to 13 years for killing his former girlfriend’s twin sister nine years ago.

Headley, 38, of 1st Avenue, Rock Dundo, St James, was back in the No. 2 Supreme Court on Tuesday. At an earlier Session of the Continuous Sittings, he had pleaded not guilty to murdering Patrina Lord, 31, formerly of Pearl Drive, Lodge Terrace, St Michael, between November 2 and 7, 2011, but guilty to unlawfully killing her – manslaughter.

The matter was prosecuted by Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Alliston Seale, while Headley was represented by attorney Safiya Moore. (HLE)
