Man gets 30 years for murder of baby

-had set house on fire

Twenty-four-year-old Nigel Dodson who back in 2017 burnt a Kaneville house in which 8-month old Romain Seth lived, was yesterday handed a 30-year sentence for the murder of the baby who perished in the fire.

Dodson had been on trial at the High Court in Georgetown before Justice Sandil Kissoon and a jury for the charge which stated that on January 23, 2017, he murdered Seth in the course or furtherance of arson.

After about two hours of deliberations, the jury returned a unanimous verdict, finding Dodson guilty as charged.
