Kenrick Williams gets life in prison for strangling 16 year old girl
Thirty-four year old Kenrick Williams, convicted of strangling sixteen year old Elia Gonzalez to death in 2004, has been sentenced to life in prison. Gonzalez, a student who was heading home to Libertad from school in Corozal Town, was accosted and dragged into some bushes where she was raped and suffocated with her shoe lace. On Wednesday, Justice Hanomansingh handed down a life sentence effective April fifteenth, 2012, the date that the April session of the Supreme Court commenced. The judgment comes after a twelve-member jury found Williams guilty of murder on July fourth, during a re-trial.
