Lawyer Kamal Worrell was today sentenced to life in prison, with orders to serve 27 years in jail before he becomes eligible for parole, for the murder of the mother of his child, Chevelle Dillas-Burgess.

The sentence was meted out by Puisne Judge Juan Wolffe, who gave Worrell the opportunity to provide some closure for the victim’s family, and most notably his son, before passing sentence.

Worrell refused by having nothing to say.

We’ll have a full report later today.
