Couple accused of concealing death of child given 12 months sentence
- Categorized in: Mello FM News
The Kingston couple who was convicted of concealment of death in relation to their two-year-old son was last Thursday sentenced to 12-month in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.
Alphanso and Stephanie Warren of Chisholm Avenue in Kingston were sentenced by Magistrate Maxine Ellis to 12 months each on charges of concealment of death and failure to bury the body of a child, which they had pleaded guilty to earlier. However, the charges are to run concurrently.
In 2009 the couple reportedly migrated to Jamaica after they were convicted on child abandonment charges in Canada and their five children were put in state custody.
In January the couple was taken into custody and later charged by the Jamaican police after the body of their son, Jeshurun, was found in a suitcase in an abandoned room at their home. The child's body was found by neighbours who had stormed the couple's home after concerns were raised about the whereabouts of the infant.
The death was said to be as a result of food poisoning, but Government pathologist later reported that the child died from natural causes.
