The fifth and final adult convicted in the beating death of 17-year-old Hilliard Sewap Jr. in Pelican Narrows almost three years ago has received his sentence.

Marcus Sewap pleaded guilty to manslaughter last year and this week was handed a jail term of three years, less 365 already served, for his role in the gang killing in May 2015.

Marcus Sewap was part of the “Wong-Streeters” who were chasing a rival gang, the “Bronxers” around the community.

During the chase Hilliard Sewap was isolated and beaten to death by at least five people.

The Crown prosecutor said alcohol consumption was a factor in the incident. 

As part of his sentence, Marcus Sewap, who is 21 years old, is banned from possessing firearms for 10 years except for the purpose of sustainable hunting.

Two youths who are still facing charges in connection with the death are awaiting their trials.
