Two people due to go to trial next week on manslaughter charges in the death of an Inverness senior two years ago have changed their pleas to guilty.

Brandy Johnena Timmons, 20, of Inverness, and Kyle Travis Timmons, 20, of Port Hawkesbury, were to jointly stand trial in Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Port Hawkesbury for two weeks beginning Monday.

They entered the new pleas during a Supreme Court appearance earlier this week, and break and enter charges against them were withdrawn, Crown attorney Gerald MacDonald said. They are due to be sentenced Aug. 17. They remain free on their bail conditions.

They were among seven people charged in the death of Ivan Rorison, 70, of Inverness, which occurred in June 2008 after a home invasion and altercation. Police got a description of the suspects and arrested a number of young people a couple of hours later in Inverness.

Rorison refused medical attention after the incident but died in hospital the following day. He died as a result of internal bleeding caused by being struck in the abdomen.
