KINGSTON, Jamaica — Omar Graham who pleaded guilty to killing the owner of Moncrieffe's Patio Shop was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

He was sentenced to 20 years for murder and 10 years in prison for wounding.

He will be eligible for parole after 15 years.

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 last 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.
