A man who shot and killed the mother of his child and seriously injured two of her family members is to be sentenced on November 8 for murder.
On Wednesday, a 12-member jury deliberated for two hours before convicting 29-year-old labourer André Williams, who is from Bull Bay in St Andrew, of the murder of 22-year-old Trishauna Sewell.
Justice Martin Gayle presided at the trial which lasted for two weeks in the Home Circuit Court.
The Crown led evidence that the reason for the murder was obsession and jealousy, because Sewell, who had a child for Williams, had ended the relationship.
Evidence was given that on the night of March 3, 2009, Williams entered Sewell's home in Seven Miles, Bull Bay, while she and family members were preparing to go to bed.
In an unsworn statement from the dock, which lasted five hours, Williams said he did not commit the offence. He said he was not in the area at the time of the incident.
