Judge Bert Bam said the accused showed no remorse for their crime and did not deserve a more lenient verdict,such as a suspended sentence.
     “The continuous conduct of the accused concerning the injuries on the deceased was barbaric and totally inexplicable” Bam said.
     “What made their conduct more reprehensible was their cowardly attack in a cell on a defenceless and already seriously man” he added.
