Jamaica: Getaway driver pleads guilty in church murder case

The getaway driver in the murder of banker Andrea Lowe-Garwood inside a Trelawny church today pleaded guilty to two of the six charges against him.

Leon Hines pleaded guilty in the Home Circuit Court to the charges of illegal possession of firearm and accessory after the fact to murder.

On the other hand, he pleaded not guilty to the charges of conspiracy to murder, murder, accessory before the fact to murder, and misprision of felony.

Hines — who is represented by attorney Michael Hemmings — will be sentenced on March 12.

The move forms part of a plea deal he signed with the prosecution this morning.

Fifty-one-year-old Lowe-Garwood was shot dead during a worship session at the Agape Christian Fellowship Church in Falmouth, Trelawny on January 31.
