MONROVIA, June 15 (LINA) – For stabbing Police Officer Nathan G. Marshall in his stomach, Abraham Zero, a resident of Camp #1 in Harbel, Firestone has been sentenced to three years imprisonment.

Judge Yamie Quiqui Gbeisay of the 13th Judicial Circuit Court in his ruling confirmed the unanimous guilty verdict brought against Zero by the trial jury.

 “... the unanimous verdict of the trial jury is hereby confirmed and affirmed. Defendant Abraham Zero is hereby adjudged guilty and sentenced to imprisonment for a period of three years effective the date of this judgment,” he ruled.
