Prime Minister Andrew Holness said the Government is moving with speed and intent to change the penalty for murder.
The proposed sentencing scheme is as follows:
For capital murder, the penalty would be Death or life imprisonment without the possibility of parole and for non-capital murder, the penalty would be 45 years to life, meaning a minimum of 45 years must be served before parole is considered.
