Killer gets 5 years after deductions

Killer Colin Hadley Reifer was given a starting sentence of 15 years for strangling his estranged wife to death when he reappeared in the No. 5A Supreme Court yesterday.

However, after a number of deductions, he will serve a remaining five years, 44 days in prison.

Reifer, now 66, a contractor, of Sunset Drive North, Fort George Heights, St Michael, had pleaded guilty to unlawfully killing his wife Cheryl Bourne-Reifer – manslaughter – on February 15, 2015. He was originally arraigned with murdering her but had denied that count.

Director of Public Prosecutions Donna Babb-Agard SC, and Senior State Counsel Romario Straker, appeared for the prosecution, while Senior Counsel Andrew Pilgrim and attorney Latisha Springer represented Reifer. (HLE)
