A 21-year-old man convicted of hijacking a Canadian jetliner while it was parked at the Montego Bay airport was sentenced Thursday to 20 years in prison. Stephen Fray was quickly led out of the courtroom as relatives and friends cried. His attorney, George Thomas, said he would appeal the ruling. Fray was found guilty last month on charges that included robbery and assault. Police said Fray pushed his way into a CanJet Airlines plane on April 19 and fired his father's licensed .38-caliber revolver into the air. He stole money from some of the 167 passengers aboard and demanded to be flown off the island, authorities said. He was captured after a six-hour standoff with police.
