Trio found guilty last week of "cold blooded" murder of Jahmal Jones
Updated 7:22am Monday 3rd March 2014 in News
THREE men convicted of an execution style killing of a Hampshire father are set to be sentenced today.
Pierre Lewis, 20, Jemmikai Orlebar Forbes, 20, and Isaac Boateng, 22, are facing life behind bars after being found guilty of murdering father-of-one Jahmel Jones at a city centre flat in Southampton.
The three south London based drug dealers lured Mr Jones, who was known by his street name Lucky, to a property in St Mary's Street, Southampton before shooting him dead as part of a drugs dealing turf war.
Jurors at Winchester Crown Court returned guilty verdicts on all three on Friday.
They also found Lewis' girlfriend, Rachel Kenehan unanimously guilty on eight charges, including assisting an offender, perverting the course of justice, and conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
The 35-year-old university lecturer and PhD student, of Hewlett Road, east London, had developed a relationship with Lewis, 15 years her junior - while on a prison mentor scheme.
Kenehan was found to have hired cars to facilitate their drugs enterprise, drove them to London in the hours after the killing, and tried to dispose of vital clothing evidence.
She will also be sentenced today.
