The man convicted for killing fashion designer Dexter Pottinger is set to spend 12 years in prison.
 
On April 10, Romario Brown, 23, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in relation to the designer's death.
 
Oon Friday, he was sentenced to 12 years for manslaughter, four years for larceny of a motor vehicle and one year for simple larceny. 
 
The sentences will run concurrently. 
 
Pottinger's decomposing body was found on August 31, 2017, by his brother at his Yarico Place residence in St Andrew.
 
In a caution statement to the police shortly after his arrest, Brown admitted to stabbing Pottinger several times. 
 
The post mortem report revealed that Pottinger was stabbed 25 times. 
 
After the fashion designer's body was found, a flat-screen television, a watch, and his Honda CR-V motor vehicle were discovered missing from the house. 
 
Brown admitted to stealing these items and helped the police recover them.
 
But Dexter Pottinger's relatives have reacted to the twelve year sentence handed down for Romario Brown, saying the time is too short. 
 
His sister, Tashan Adams, said the family is not satisfied.
