The self-confessed killer of popular Baxter’s Road proprietor Colin Forde, will be sentenced by the No. 2 Supreme Court next week.

Mitchell had 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, while Senior Crown Counsel Olivia Davis prosecuted.

Justice Randall Worrell adjourned sentencing until September 15.
