Guilty plea to brutal killing


Share post:

TERRY SEALE SLASHED the throat of Moreta Forde more than two years ago, convinced she had given him a fatal sexually transmitted disease.

And yesterday the prosecution accepted the 52-year-old man’s guilty plea to manslaughter, saying that Forde’s response the night Seale challenged her on it was provocation enough. 110113moreta3

The brutal death of the popular administrator between October 30 and 31, 2013, shocked the island when her body was pulled from her burning home at Fisherpond, St Thomas. Immediately police went on a manhunt before a suicidal Seale was found, taken to hospital and eventually charged.

Principal Crown Counsel Anthony Blackman, who appeared along with Crown Counsel Krystal Delaney, said that Forde and Seale, her gardener, were in an intimate relationship and while she resided at Fisherpond, she allowed him to stay at her second home at Groves Crescent, St George, after his home was damaged by Hurricane Tomas.
