St. Vincent & Grenadines: Man gets 31 years for killing bishop who raped him

A man who chopped to death a pastor, who had drugged and raped him and infected him with HIV, has been jailed for 31 years.

Justice Brian Cottle handed down the sentence on Anwar Jack, 26, of Georgetown, at the High Court, in Kingstown, on Tuesday, in what he said was “a most unfortunate case”.

As of Tuesday, Jack– who is bipolar and suffers from antisocial personality disorder — had spent two years, three months and 27 days on remand.

Therefore, he has to serve a further 28 years, eight months and three days in prison.

The judge also ordered that during Jack’s incarceration, he received counselling to assist him in his rehabilitation and that the state provided him with the medication he needs, at no cost to him.
