Almost four years after the Christmas Day murder of Sophia resident Celwyn Allen, the man accused of killing him admitted to the crime today in Court.
23-year-old Bevon Griffith aka ‘Spooney’ appeared in Court this morning for the start of the murder trial, but opted to enter a guilty plea to the lesser count of manslaughter.
He was accused of stabbing Allen to death on Christmas Day in 2017 during a row and also injuring Allen’s girlfriend.
Allen was stabbed repeatedly to the body in the attack while his girlfriend sustained injuries to her hands and other parts of the body.
The incident took place in C’ Field, Sophia.
With the guilty plea by the accused today, Justice Jo-ann Barlow has set the 11th November for sentencing.
