Bjorn Burke, Staff Reporter

One of three Jamaicans convicted in relation to the March 2010 Rochester, New York drug-related triple homicide, has been sentenced to four consecutive life prison terms.

He is 44-year-old Andrew Wright.

According to the United States Attorney's Office, Wright was the last of the three to be sentenced following the 2010 drug-related killings.

THE STAR gathered that the other two men, Richard Anderson and Aston Johnson, were also sentenced to four consecutive life terms plus five years in March.

All three men are believed to have travelled from Arizona to New York to murder three others following an argument over the apportioning of proceeds from a large-scale ganja trafficking network, prosecutors said.
