Hepburn’s Sentencing Delayed

A former building contractor, who was recently convicted of murdering his lover two years ago, will have to wait another week to learn his sentence.

Supreme Court Justice Indra Charles was supposed to sentence Prince Hepburn yesterday.

However, that did not happen.

Hepburn’s attorney, Murrio Ducille, told reporters outside of court that he had another case to deal with.

Additionally, Franklyn Williams, the lead prosecutor in Hepburn’s trial, was not available as he was dealing with a case in the Court of Appeal (COA) at the time.

In March, a jury unanimously convicted Hepburn, 50, of killing Nellie Mae Brown-Cox.

Brown-Cox, 42, was hacked to death inside her South Beach apartment in April 2011.

Police found her dismembered body inside her kitchen.

Hepburn was charged with the crime a week later.

Hepburn and Brown-Cox were involved in an extramarital affair.

Dr. Michael Neville, a psychiatrist who testified at Hepburn’s trial, said the depression Hepburn experienced after learning his sweetheart was cheating on him caused a chemical imbalance in his brain. This, he said, led Hepburn to attempt suicide and chop Brown-Cox to death.

He could face life in prison.
