Omar Wellington Trial Update

Another youth who took part in the beating that claimed the life of Omar Wellington was handed a sentence of 6 years. The man now 20 years old, received the maximum sentence for a youth. The young man, who was 16 at the time can only be identified as J.J.

Four others also pleaded guilty, two to assault causing bodily harm and two to aggravated assault. One of them was himself murdered last week in Flemingdon Park in what is believed to be an unrelated shooting. The gang attacked Wellington because they had paid him $1,500 to buy a gun from his cousin, but he returned with neither with the gun nor the money. (inset. from Toronto Star)
