IT WAS A CASE of a robbery gone wrong.

That, in essence, was the confession of Chris Avian Amal Lord, who yesterday pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the shooting death of Colin Forde on May 10, 2016.

Lord, 31, of 2nd Avenue, Thomas Gap, President Kennedy Drive, St Michael, had initially been charged with murder, but admitted to the lesser count of manslaughter, before Justice Randall Worrell in the No. 2 Supreme Court yesterday.

He will learn his fate early in the New Year. (HLE)
