Two men have been sent to prison for the 2008 killing of  Police Constable Andre Chung. 
 
Ras-Amin Brown and Daniel Powell were sentenced on Tuesday to 8 years and 5 months imprisonment at hard labour for illegal possession of  a firearm, 15 years at hard labour for making use of  a firearm to commit a felony, 10 years and 5 months for robbery with aggravation and 13 years and 5 months for manslaughter.
 
The sentences are to run concurrently.
 
Powell and Brown were found guilty by a seven member jury on January 20.
 
Constable Chung, who was 22 years old, was killed on his way home.
 
He boarded a car which both men rented and were operating as a taxi.
 
After the men realized that Mr Chung was a cop they robbed him of  his service pistol and computer tablet.
 
The policeman was then beaten and shot to death.
 
His body was discovered the following morning on Tavistock Terrace in St Andrew.
