Life in Prison! After St Ann Family Chopped Dead Disabled Man

Jamaica News, February 25, 2018 – St Ann Family Chopped Dead Disabled Man

St Ann, Jamaica (Mckoy’s News) – Sixty-five-year-old Velma Dean lead her husband and three adult sons to their elderly neighbour’s house in the parish of St Ann and declared to him that they were going to kill his son. Moments later – the family of five, chopped and stoned, roped and dragged the man’s mentally-ill son and chopped him some more to death. She and her husband will now spend the rest of her lives in prison.

The Dean family of five; mother, father and three adult children all killed the disabled man. They were present before Justice Carol Lawrence-Beswick for sentencing on Wednesday, February 21 in the Home Circuit Court, downtown Kingston.

Mrs Dean was graced with 30-years behind bars before being eligible for parole at 95-years-old.

The court also sentenced her husband Joseph 69-year-old, to life in prison. He must serve 25-years before he will be eligible for parole.

The couples two oldest sons, Richard, 44-years-old and Dwight, 38, were each sentenced to 20 years in prison and will be eligible for parole after 12 years.

The younger son, Jermaine, 29-year-old was sentenced to 15 years in prison, with eligibility for parole after 10 years in prison.

St Ann Family Chopped Dead Disabled Man: Justice Lawrence-Beswick addressed the parents as she handed down the family’s faith for the gruesome family killing, telling them that ‘the victim had a right to life.’ With Velma Deam weeping bitterly, the judge said,

“You appeared to have played a major role,” the judge scolded Velma Dean. “I know he was considered a nuisance in the community, but he had a right to life,” the judge stressed.

Justice Lawrence-Beswick scolded Joseph Dean also, for misguiding his sons. “You guided them down the wrong path,” she told the patriarch.


MUST READ – the heart gripping testimony of the frail elderly father, in this case, Audley McLean who testifies to watching helplessly as the horrid family stoned and chopped his mentally-ill son Stanley.
