Dancehall star Elephant Man’s brother was sentenced to life imprisonment after being convicted on a murder charge.
According to reports, Ele’s brother, Shane Brown, and another man, Andre Ennis, were charged with the murder of a couple, Tyawo McKenzie and Jhanel Whyte in 2008.
Home Circuit Court Justice Lloyd Hibbert handed down the judgment earlier this week, sentencing the two men to 50 years behind bars.
Another man, George Cooper, was also charged in the murder but was sentenced to 8 years after entering a plea deal with the prosecution.
Reports are that in November of 2008 the couple was travelling together where they met in an unfortunate accident involving Cooper and Ennis, who were riding a motorcycle.
The couple took the men to the hospital where they were treated for their injuries and released. The following day the couple made arrangements to bring medicine to the injured men at a home in Havendale, however, the couple was never seen alive since.
Their decomposed bodies were found days later in bushes in Red Hills. Their throats were slashed.
