Murderer to be sentenced almost five months after conviction

By Zaya Wiliams

 

Despite being in prison for almost three years, the past few months have perhaps been the most difficult for convicted murderer Kenworth Charles.

He has been waiting patiently since February this year to find out what his punishment will be for killing retired soldier Fitzroy Robins.

Charles was accused of stabbing Robins several times about his body during an altercation in Villa.

The incident happened around 11:45 pm on July 24, 2020, and followed a previous dispute between them.

Charles had refused to pay for drinks he had from a woman’s cooler and was forced to pay by the deceased.

He returned to the spot days or weeks later and got into an altercation with the older man and killed him.

But the accused claims that it was an accident caused by his intoxication.

Charles, a former hospital IT Technician, was convicted of murdering Robins after a trial before Justice Colin Williams.

A jury returned the guilty verdict following two hours of deliberations.

But his sentencing hearing has been delayed for varying reasons.

Weeks ago the High Court had to close doors due to a mold infestation and this was one of several matters that were affected.

But finally, Charles has gotten a new date for his sentencing hearing- July 18.

The convict could be sent to prison for life.

    Make an example of Charles, too many murders on this beautiful island we all love so much.

    I say Hang ‘Em High and let God sort him out and the future killers that should also be hung for murderous crimes.
