Elderly man sentenced to life in prison
GARNETT LEVERE BROME will spend the rest of his life in jail for a brutal killing at the Bridgetown Fisheries Complex almost four years ago.
Justice Michelle Weeks handed down the maximum sentence this morning in the No.2 Supreme Court.
Brome, 72, of Six Men’s St Peter pleaded guilty to manslaughter on July 5, 2016 in connection with the death of Caroline Forde.
The two worked at the complex and were said to be in an intimate relationship at the time.
Brome beat and stabbed Forde after a disagreement over money.
Brome, who walks with a walker, almost fell as he left the courtroom headed for the place where he will spend the rest of his life. (TKS)
