Convicted murderer back in court

COURT TODAY BLOCKHaving been found guilty of intentionally wounding and robbing Starrio Elcock, Jason Kevin Marshall was sentenced to 10 years for robbing him and seven years on the second count.

That sentence will run concurrent to one which Marshall is already serving for unlawfully killing Andrew Scantlebury. Marshall, of Olive Drive, Crane, St. Philip, was found guilty in February 2014 of unlawfully killing Scantlebury.

Subsequently, Justice Randall Worrell sentenced him to 17 years but after discounting time he had spent on remand, he was ordered to serve 10 years and nine months for that offence.

Scantlebury was a patron at the Road View, St Peter arcade when he was shot in the stomach by Marshall, who was robbing the place.

The convict returned to the No. 2 Supreme Court before Justice Margaret Reifer for sentencing in relation to Elcock, who was robbed of a gold chain and pendant worth $2 500, on December 29, 2007.

In his evidence, the complainant recalled that he was at a shop in Black Rock waiting to buy food on that day. He moved away from the other patrons after receiving a call on his cellular phone.

Marshall passed him and went on, so he thought that Marshall was not bothering to wait for a meal. Soon after, while he was still on the phone, he turned to see Marshall pointing a gun at him and demanding that he hand over his chain and pendant.

Elcock said he froze during the incident, all the while looking at Marshall, who had his head covered but not his face. He later picked out Marshall at an identification parade.

As he was about to remove the chain from his neck, Elcock said Marshall shot him in his leg and he fell, only later realizing from the pain that the bullet had gone through one leg and out through the other. Marshall kicked him afterwards.

Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Donna Babb-Agard QC prosecuted the case while Marshall conducted his own defence.

    No wonder people feel it’s ok to kill each other in Barbados! 10 years the man knew what he was going and he is an repeat offender he should have gotten life or 20-30 Years you have to make an example of these idiots so the other idiots would think before they act.

    The Americans would suggest this guy is a three time loser and gets life with no chance of parole.
    In Barbados is a life only worth 17 yr out of the offender’s life? In addition, the robbery is a separate and second offense and he should serve those 10 yr consecutive not concurrent. He will be back on the streets to do it again in just 10 years. His first victim is dead and his second likely will carry the trauma all his life while this turkey walks free.
    For a minute I was thinking I was reading about a Canadian court sentence. Clearly not!
