“It’s definitely not coming from there,” she said.
• When it came to expressing his remorse brutally beating a teenager, Matthew Paul King opted for a different approach.
In an usual move at provincial court in St. John’s Wednesday, King performed a rap when he testified at his sentencing hearing. Entitled “Forgiveness,” it was a piece King said he wrote in preparation for the hearing.
