SUPREME Court Justice Estelle Gray-Evans yesterday sentenced convicted murderer Rasheed Farrington to 45 years in prison.
Farrington, 30, was found guilty of the murder of 40-year-old Lamorn Moxey during his Freeport trial on September 25. He was also found guilty of stealing and causing harm, for which he was sentenced to one year and ten years, respectively.
The sentences will run concurrently.
Moxey, a good Samaritan, was stabbed to death on December 8, 2014, by Farrington when he and another man went to assist a woman who had been accosted and robbed of her handbag.
Farrington stabbed both men, fatally injuring Moxey during a struggle. Moxey, who had suffered a severe stomach injury, was taken to hospital where he later died.
The other man was treated for his wounds and survived the attack.
At the sentencing, Farrington was represented by attorney Carlson Shurland. Erica Kemp of the Office of the Attorney General appeared on behalf of the Crown.
