Jason Kevin Marshall would like to be able to spend some time with his son and have the opportunity to raise him the right way.
That formed part of Marshall’s mitigation when he appeared before Justice Randall Worrell this afternoon.
Marshall, of Olive Drive, Crane, St Philip, was found guilty in February 2014 of unlawfully killing Andrew Scantlebury.
Scantlebury died after being shot in the stomach during a robbery at a Road View, St Peter Arcade.
The convict went on to say that he was 22 at the time of the offence and is now 30 and had learnt a lot since being remanded. He further expressed an interest in getting involved in culinary arts.
According to Keeper of Records Bentley Boucher, Marshall spent 2,317 days on remand so far, in relation to this incident.
In response, Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Donna Babb-Agard said that Marshall’s actions were planned. She referred to the fact that he went to the arcade on that day and used the buzzer in order to be let in, before replacing his mask, robbing the establishment and shooting Scantlebury.
She pointed out that he had not gone to an empty room with the gun, but to a place where people were.
Marshall returns to court next week for sentencing.
