The man who was last year charged for the killing of noted retired journalist and public commentator, Peter Abrahams, has been sentenced to seven years in prison for the crime.

The man – 61-year-old Norman Tomlinson – pleaded guilty to manslaughter last month, after having been charged with murder in February of last year.

Abrahams, 97, was found dead with multiple injuries at his home in Red Hill, St Andrew on January 18, 2017.

Reports were that Tomlinson, the spouse of Abrahams’ household helper, visited the now deceased man and a dispute developed between the two men.

In a fit of rage, Tomlinson reportedly beat Abrahams to death.
