KINGSTON, Jamaica — Sentencing for the man who admitted to killing Moncrieffe's Patio Shop owner earlier this year was postponed a short while ago.

Omar Graham, otherwise called 'Brown Man' of Alexander Road in Kingston, pleaded guilty in October to the murder of 76-year-old Barbara Moncrieffe and the injuring of her husband and two others.

The elderly woman died after receiving several blows to her body from a piece of iron, which was also used to inflict injuries on the other victims.

Graham pleaded guilty in October as part of the sentence reduction initiative, which provides the platform for individuals to enter a guilty plea and benefit from up to maximum of 50 per cent reduction in their sentence, according to the provisions of the Criminal Justice Administration Amendment Act 2015.

The programme, which had its first installment on May 22, is being implemented by the Criminal Case Management Steering Committee, which has as its mandate the implementation of policies and strategies that are geared towards the administration of justice in a timely manner in all the courts.
