Man guilty of manslaughter begs for forgiveness

Social Share

The then 20-year-old, who pumped three bullets in Colin Forde as the popular Baxters Road proprietor struggled with another assailant, begged Forde’s family for forgiveness.

In addition, Eddisa Deon Mitchell said he hoped society would not judge him harshly on his release from prison.

Mitchell, now 24, of 2nd Avenue, Thomas Gap, President Kennedy Drive, St Michael, pleaded guilty to unlawfully killing – manslaughter – Forde on May 10, 2016, after he had denied murdering the shopkeeper on the same date.

He was represented by attorney Safiya Moore.

He told the No. 2 Supreme Court there were no words that could “condone taking someone’s life”. (HLE)
