TERRY SEALE SLASHED the throat of Moreta Forde more than two years ago, convinced she had given him a fatal sexually transmitted disease.

Principal Crown Counsel Anthony Blackman, who appeared along with Crown Counsel Krystal Delaney, said that Forde and Seale, her gardener, were in an intimate relationship and while she resided at Fisherpond, she allowed him to stay at her second home at Groves Crescent, St George, after his home was damaged by Hurricane Tomas.
