Man Gets LIFE in Prison For Quadruple Murder in Clarendon

The Clarendon man convicted of murdering an accounting clerk and three teen boys in the Monymusk Housing Scheme in 2015 has been sentenced to life imprisonment.

Germaine Turner, 29 was sentenced Thursday in the Home Circuit Court to four terms of life imprisonment. However, he’ll serve 60 years of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole.

He was convicted for the murders of Marquis Hamilton, 35, an accounting clerk employed to the Monymusk Sugar Factory; Alex Turner, 16; Ricardo Briscoe, 14; and Raymond Givans, 14.

The murders occurred April 15, 2015.

Justice Dale Palmer, who presided over the case, ordered that Turner serve 30 years in prison on each count and that the first two sentences are to run after each other.

The other two are to run at the same time.

Prosecutor Kelly Ann Boyne led evidence that Hamilton and his common-law wife were at their Shrimp Street home in the Monymusk Housing Scheme when the three boys stopped to used their unsecured wireless Internet service.

It's reported that Turner and another man approached the couple and brandished guns.

Prosecutors say he instructed his accomplice to rob them, but Hamilton's female companion managed to escape.

According to the evidence, Turner then ordered Hamilton and the three boys to lay down before shooting them execution-style in the head and chest.
