Twenty-five-year-old Kevon Hamilton of St. Paul’s will spend the rest of his life behind bars. The young man was handed a life sentence after being found guilty of the murder of Ernest “Grey Patch” Hendricks, in July of 2015.
The sentence was passed a few days ago, April 5.
According to a statement from the Police, “the court commented that murder with a firearm places that type of murder into the worst of the worst. The court further argued that his seemly good character or attempt at rehabilitation whilst in prison cannot overshadow what he did.”
The deceased operated a small bakery in Palmetto Point. Hendricks was in his bakery on June 24, 2015, when an assailant shot him in his stomach during the commission of a robbery.
Hendricks succumbed to his injuries two weeks later, on July 7.
Hamilton was subsequently charged for Hendrick’s murder and convicted in November 29, last year.
