Parents of the 11-year-old boy killed by three former Princess Margaret Secondary School students want the full extent of the law to be visited on their son’s killers.

This was revealed when convicted manslayers Maria Antoinette Goddard, Doniko Javier Alleyne and Shaquille Shamar Khallel Bradshaw returned to the No 2 Supreme Court on Friday.

Goddard, then 12, now 22, of Parish Land; Alleyne, also then 12, of Balls Land, and Bradshaw, then 14, now 24, also of Balls Land, Christ Church, were found guilty, earlier this year, of unlawfully killing – manslaughter – Ian Gibson on September 20, 2009.

Principal Crown Counsel Alliston Seale prosecuted the matter. Attorney Angella Mitchell-Gittens represented Alleyne and Goddard, and attorney Arthur Holder appeared for Bradshaw during the trial. (HLE)
