Quaison Jones

Sentenced to 57 years behind bars after being found guilty of murdering his fellow fish cleaner, Quaison Jones, called ‘Blondie’, is appealing the sentence, saying that it is severe.

In the circumstances, he is arguing that this amounted to a misdirection of the jury on the judge’s part. ….
