Ex-cop sentenced to life imprisonment

Ex-cop Ricketo Graham has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the July 2013 murder of  Christopher Hill in St. Ann.

The ruling was handed down yesterday by Justice Glen Brown in the Home Circuit Court.

Graham will serve 35 years before being eligible for parole.
 
Justice Brown commented that Hill's murder was a cold-blooded and callous killing; and this should be a warning to other officers that unless they discharge their firearms in self  defence they face a custodial sentence.
 
Graham was found guilty last month by a seven member jury.
 
Evidence presented in court during the trial was that  Hill was accosted by the police, taken to the Brown’s Town Police Station, processed and subsequently taken to Wesley Crescent where he was shot.
 
He succumbed to his injuries at the St. Ann’s Bay Hospital days later.
 
INDECOM arrested and charged Constable Graham on July 19, 2013, with attempting to pervert the course of  justice and murder.
