19 year sentence for fisherman who confessed to killing Portland businesswoman

A fisherman who confessed to being offered $3 million  to kill Portland businesswoman, Tonia McDonald, was yesterday sentenced to 19 years behind bars.
 
On Monday, when the matter was called up in the Home Circuit Court, Denvalyn Minott pleaded guilty to murder.
 
Minott will have to serve 10 years before being eligible for parole.
 
His confession was included in a caution statement he made to detectives assigned to the Major Investigation Division.
 
This took place two weeks after Mrs McDonald's partially-burnt body, with the throat slashed, was found inside her car in Sherwood Forest, Portland on July 20 this year.
 
Meanwhile, Tonia McDonald's husband, Everton McDonald and another man Asher Barnes are scheduled to return to court today.
 
Both men were arrested and charged with Mrs McDonald's slaying.
