Cordell Farrington Sentenced to Life in Prisonon October 3, 2010 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Cordell Farrington, who confessed to the murders of Junior Reme, Mackinson Colas, Desmond Rolle, and Deangelo McKenzie in Grand Bahama, was given four life sentences by a judge on Thursday. Farrington was already serving a life sentence for the death of his live-in partner Jamal Robins.
The murders were a mystery for five months until Farrington walked into a police station in October 2003 and confessed, saying he “couldn’t take it anymore.” The prosecution accepted pleas of manslaughter in the boys’ deaths because Farrington was suffering a severe personality disorder at the time of his times. Generally, personality disorders are not considered a mitigating factor in the United States.
Farrington’s confession was read into the record, detailing how he lured his victims before killing them. He raped three of the victims prior to killing them.
