Sentencing In Homicide Case Prompts An Outburst In Court
The mother of the victim of an unsolved homicide had to be removed from Berkshire Superior Court last week at the sentencing of a woman who lied to police in connection with the incident.
The Berkshire Eagle reports that the outburst came during the sentencing of Tamara Morgan. Morgan admitted to giving investigators a false alibi for an early suspect in the case.
Theresa Wilson-Hinch identified herself as the mother of 38-year-old Joseph Brown, who was found shot dead on Columbus Avenue in the early morning hours of July 17th, 2016.
Morgan's attorney, Daniel Kelly, asked Judge Michael Callan to consider sentencing Morgan to probation.
The judge rejected Kelly's suggestion of probation, noting the crimes deserved some form of incarceration and sentenced Morgan to six months in jail.
After her jail sentence is over, Morgan will be put on probation for two years She was also given credit for four days already served in custody.
