Sentencing postponed for man who pleaded guilty to killing parents

By Racquel Porter   
 
The sentencing hearing for Simeon Ramsay, the man who pleaded guilty to killing his parents, was postponed until October 4, due to the absence of a comprehensive psychiatric report.
 
Ramsay, a teacher, was reportedly examined and said to have suffered from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
 
When the matter was called up in the St. Catherine Circuit Court on Friday, his attorney Tom Tavares-Finson requested an adjournment to allow the report to be added for sentencing.
 
Investigators had reported that Mr. Ramsey attacked his parents on the morning of February 4, 2022 at their home in Christian Meadows, Portmore, St. Catherine.
 
Phyllis Ramsay, a 55-year-old school teacher, and Cecil Ramsay, a 59-year-old minister of religion, died from stab wounds.
 
Mr. Ramsey then drove away from the scene and was held in Phoenix Park, St. Catherine, after his vehicle crashed.
 
He was subsequently arrested and charged with two counts of murder.
 
He pleaded guilty to manslaughter last year.
