ST JAMES, Jamaica – The 17-year-old William Knibb Memorial High School student who pleaded guilty to manslaughter in connection with the stabbing death of fellow student, Khamal Hall, was sentenced to four years and 10 months a short while ago.
Justice Andrea Thomas handed down the ruling in the matter on Monday in the St James Circuit Court.
She explained that she took into consideration a number of factors when coming to her decision.
Hall was fatally stabbed during a dispute at school, allegedly over a guard ring, in March of this year.
The accused was subsequently charged and in November he pled guilty.
