A New Glasgow man has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.
Trevor Daniel Broderick, 22, changed his plea Friday following a resolution conference in Supreme Court.
Broderick was charged in the second-degree murder of 51-year-old Bruce Philip Smith. Smith was found stabbed to death in his Washington Street apartment last June.
A guilty plea to a second-degree murder charge automatically carries with it a sentence of life in prison. Broderick will be officially sentenced on April 1 in Supreme Court.
In the meantime, he’ll remain at the Burnside Correctional Facility while he awaits sentencing.
“I’m pleased with the resolution,” said Crown attorney Bill Gorman. “I believe it’s reflective of the strength of the Crown’s case.”
Broderick’s co-accused, John David DeWolfe, 24, will next appear in court on April 14 to set a date for a preliminary inquiry.
