Men found guilty of murdering Jamworld watchman to be sentenced

Two men have been convicted of the murder Devon Marsh, a watchman who was employed to Jamworld Entertainment Center, Portmore, St Catherine.



Marsh's body was found with the throat slit in a septic pit at Jamworld on August 5, 2003.



Devon Sweeney, who was employed to Jamworld as a night watchman and labourer Ray Bryan will be sentenced by Justice Courtney Daye on March 6.



The trial began last month before a 12- member jury in the Home Circuit Court and ended earlier this week.



The Crown alleged that sometime between July 31 and August 5, 2003 the men murdered Marsh.



There was no eyewitness to the murder but prosecutors Kerri-Ann Kemble and Donnette Henriques presented circumstantial evidence to prove the case against the men.



Although the men were arrested and charged in 2003, the trial was delayed because the file was destroyed in a fire at the Spanish Town courthouse several years ago and the police had to reconstruct the file.
