(JAMAICA OBSERVER) – Adrian Campbell, one of the four men convicted for the murders of 18-year-old Joeith Lynch and her mother Carole Rattray, has been sentenced to 44 years at hard labour.

Justice Vivene Harris, in handing down the ruling, said she had gone outside the sentencing guidelines in prescribing the sentence because of the exceptionally gruesome nature of the crime.

“You will serve a minimum 44 years before being eligible for parole on both counts of the indictment, and the sentences will run concurrently,” Harris said this afternoon.

The second convict in the case, Roshane Goldson, Lynch’s cousin, has been slapped with a 46-year life sentence at hard labour.

The third, Fabian Smith, is to be imprisoned for life at hard labour , and serve a minimum 44 years before being eligible for parole.

The fourth man, Kemar Riley, was slapped with life imprisonment at hard labour, and will serve a minimum 52 years before being eligible for parole. Riley had pleaded not guilty and had opted to go to trial.
