THE woman who admitted to paying two men to kill her friend in 2005 so that she could take her baby will possibly be sentenced sometime in August.
Kerry Ann Hosang, who earlier this month pleaded guilty to felony murder, reappeared before Justice Althea Alexis-Windsor on Wednesday.
However, Hosang could not be sentenced, as a bio-social report, which is being prepared by the prison authorities, was not yet ready, so instead the judge adjourned the matter to August 5.
Alexis-Windsor said if the report is ready sooner, then the sentencing hearing will be brought up earlier.
Attorneys for the State and Hosang were also directed to submit their recommendations for sentencing to the judge by e-mail.
Hosang pleaded guilty to her role in the death of Reena Kissoon between August 30 and September 4, 2005.
Kissoon died of a chop wound to the neck which went through the trachea and spine.
Hosang told police she wanted Kissoon’s baby, so she paid the boyfriend of a friend and another man to “lick up Reena” so she could take the baby.
She said Kissoon owed her money and they had a disagreement over the repayment of the money.
Hosang was present when Kissoon was chopped, but said she tried to stop the man she paid to threaten Kissoon, but was beaten on the face, and instead, she left the two men in the house with Kissoon and took the baby.
She also left $800 on a chair for the man.
Hosang also admitted to making everyone believe Kissoon’s baby was hers.
She is represented by attorneys Keith Scotland and Asha Watkins- Montserrin.State attorney Maria Lyons-Edwards is prosecuting.
