Justice delivered in trial for murder of Kurt McCartney…
Nassau, Bahamas – The man who murdered Kurt McCartney, THORNE Edwards, was sentenced to 45 years for murder and 20 years for armed robbery for his role in the killing of the businessman.
The sentences for the convicted murderer will run concurrently and were reduced by three years by Senior Justice Stephen Isaacs for time spent on remand.
Edwards has been in custody since November 2013.
His co-accused and former girlfriend, Lyndera Curry, received seven years for her manslaughter conviction and five years for armed robbery.
The prosecution had asked Senior Justice Isaacs to impose the maximum penalties – death and life sentences – on the law books for the accused. However Justice Isaacs concluded that the prosecution did not convince that the incident was the worse of the worse.
