GUILTY

Chat - - True-Life -

On 3 June 2009, Dar­ryl Lit­tle­john, 44, was found guilty of first-de­gree mur­der.

A month later, Judge Abra­ham G Gerges sen­tenced him to life with no pa­role.

‘I hope that the con­clu­sion of these pro­ceed­ings to­day will pro­vide you with some small mea­sure of so­lace,’ he told Imette’s rel­a­tives.

Vow­ing to ap­peal the sen­tence, de­fence lawyer Joyce David said, ‘I think it’s good that the fam­ily feels they have some clo­sure, but I think they have been sold a false bill of goods and the wrong man got con­victed.’

An ap­peal failed in 2013, and Lit­tle­john is still be­hind bars.
