Quincy Henry called “Fix It” was on Monday sentenced to 13 years imprisonment by Justice Brassignton Reynolds for the September 20, 2015, attempted murder of Troy Bacchus called fletcher.
It was reported that he stabbed the victim to the neck after Bacchus refused to give him 100 dollars.
Henry, who had initially denied wounding Bacchus, changed his plea to guilty at the High Court at his last hearing.
He had previously said he was defending himself, but after reconsideration, he accepted responsibility for his actions; and this has led Justice Reynolds to direct the jury foreman to return a formal verdict of guilty.
Justice Reynolds had, however, delayed passing sentence on the handyman to October 8, to facilitate the preparation and presentation of a probation report.
Based on reports surrounding the case, Henry has had a habit of asking individuals for money, and would be violent when persons refuse his request.
On the day in question, Bacchus refused Henry’s request, and was wounded by him.
Henry had not been represented by legal counsel at his trial, as he had not retained one, and the State is not required to provide legal representation for attempted murder.
