Man admits to chopping wife, daughters
It was a tearful Horace Everton Burgess who confessed to chopping his wife and his two daughters before penning a six-page, two-part suicide letter and then attempting to cut his own throat ten years ago.
Burgess, 64, of Maynards Development, St Peter, was in the No. 2 Supreme Court where he pleaded guilty to causing serious bodily harm to Audrey Burgess with intent; unlawfully and maliciously inflicting serious bodily harm on daughter Jamila Burgess and unlawfully and maliciously inflicting serious bodily harm on daughter Janaye Burgess, all on August 17, 2010.
He has no previous convictions.
Justice Randall Worrell adjourned the matters until March 19 when Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim will call a number of character witnesses on the man’s behalf. (HLE)
