Jamaica: Contract Killer Makes Tearful Confession To Murder Of Portland Businessman’s Wife

A contract killer has detailed how he lured Tonia McDonald, wife of popular Portland businessman, Everton ‘Beachy Stout’ McDonald, to a deserted roadway in the parish and watched as the man he sub-contracted stabbed her repeatedly.

The details were outlined in the Home Circuit Court on Monday after Denvalyn Minott, 56, pleaded guilty to murder for his role in the July 20, 2020 killing.

Minnott was today sentenced to 19 years in prison and ordered to serve 10 years before he becomes eligible for parole.

Justice Vivene Harris, who imposed the sentence, called the killing horrifying.

Minott’s confessions were contained in a caution statement he made to detectives assigned to the Major Investigation Division, two weeks after the partially-burnt body of the 32-year-old businesswoman was found with its throat slashed inside her car in Sherwood Forest, Portland.
