O'Brien Ellis, one of Jamaica’s most wanted men who was captured in Cayman on August 18 will be sent home after completing his jail sentence next week.
Ellis had pleaded with the court to now his extradition on the grounds that he could face the death penalty if returned to Jamaica. However, the court did not agree to his argument about a “right to life” under our constitution and he will be returned to Jamaica after the completion of his sentence.
Ellis is accused of murdering his brother in Jamaica but was jailed in Cayman for possession of ganja and illegal landing. Today he was sentenced to five days for the ganja possession; the sentence will run concurrently with his three-month sentence for illegal landing.
Immediately after completing that sentence, the Jamaican native will be deported to his homeland to answer to charges of murder and arson.
