Jamal Andrews’ mother Lucy said she was relieved at the verdict. “It’s such a tragedy for all of us, all our families,” she added.
Andrews’ brother Josh noted, “We are part way through. We still have a whole other part to go through - but we are half way there. This is some relief; but it’s not the end. Our family and friends would like to say thank you for the support we received from everyone - staying in touch and taking time out of their days to be in court and support us.”
