Brome sentenced to life in prison

A 72-year-old fisherman who admitted to stabbing Caroline Roberta Forde to death three years ago has been jailed for life.

The verdict was handed down on Garnett Levere Brome a short while ago by Madam Justice Michelle Weekes in the No. 2 Supreme Court.

Forde, a 49-year-old fish vendor, died at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital after she was brutally stabbed on August 19, 2013.

      Life means for the duration of your life – not 25 years. However, the Privy Council will assess him every 4 years to determine whether he is sufficiently reformed to be released

      • Lizzy June 26, 2017 at 6:10 pm

        The Privy Council has no jurisdiction in Barbados starboy, it is the CCJ. Which rock have you been under?

        • Anthony Blackman June 27, 2017 at 9:28 am

          Lizzy, there is the Judicial Committee of the British Privy Council and there is the local Privy Council which reviews sentences and recommends whether mercy should be extended. It is also called the ‘mercy committee’. Mr. Koieman is more than correct and qualified to speak on matters such as this.

      JOANNA SMITH:I send out my deepest condolences to them maam the deceased family , Are you advocating for life in prison for all killers, troglodytes who commot all murders and especially the gunmen that are killing at will too maam.
      Were you up in arms when they gave bail to a youngman accused of manslaughter , dont you think the deceased family members were vexed about that as well! did you support that families plight and all the other families of dead individusls on BIM KILLED?
      I never excused the skullduggerous act, just the act of putting a 72 yr old man in jail for life which is by definition the death penalty in a slick way, i would have had more respect for the magistrate if she would have just given him death by hanging.
      Stealth justice is abhorrent and crass, now that the precedent has been set i expect to see your continued avocation for all murderer’s. To be sentenced to LIFE IN PRISON . And i hipe that your fervent beliief in death by hanging extends to people in your family if one of them so happens to commit murder! just to keep it 100% across the board. QUOTE “stuppesss hang he asses” UNQUOTE

      • Lizzy June 26, 2017 at 6:32 pm

        Oh geese, maybe you need to familiarize yourself with the justice system in Barbados. First off a magistrate would not preside over a matter of this nature, it was a judge. Second, the judge would have looked at the circumstances that prevailed at the time the offense was committed. The judge did not operate on a whim the decision was made in accordance with the law and the facts of the case. Third, if I am correct the charge was manslaughter and not murder therefore the judge could not legally impose the death penalty. Clearly you are suggesting that the judge is incompetent, when in fact she is operating with in the four corners of the law.

        Why is it unreasonable for a man of 72 years to be incarcerated for life? His age did not stop him from inflicting the wounds which took the woman’s life. Why should it be a factor in his sentencing? He should be able to pay the price for this egregious crime.

      Kaiser Sose, I always say that these judges should be elected and not selected so when they comes up for election they can be voted out if the people think that they are not performing to standard.

    A 72-year-old fisherman who admitted to stabbing Caroline Roberta Forde to death three years ago has been jailed for life.
    now this is what i read but from these comments u would think he got least time. i think ppl don’t understand that the woman was his girlfriend who was telling him she done n he could not take a done n he flee into a jealous rage n kill her so yes life is good i’m sure life for him life wont b too long he’s 72. she has family members that will miss her n i’m sure they feel justice was served ppl might think it’s not fair because other ppl who committed murder got least but we were not in the court room to hear the evidence brought b4 him for him to get life

      Shawn you talking boy…but when a man love a woman bad and she horn he all sorts a things does be going through the man mind.
      I know a married man that horn he wife with about 5 or 6 different women one after the other not knowing he wife did horning he before he was horning she and when he found out,the man went bonkers.
      Whenever a woman sees that a man loves her…she does run rings around him.Sparrow say marry a woman that LOVES you not one that you love…like her or doan show that you love her.

  29. just observing June 26, 2017 at 4:48 pm

  32. Bajancanuck June 26, 2017 at 6:30 pm

    Second offence….he needed rehabilitation instead of sending him back to Barbados to re-offend…..some real anger in conjunction with mental health issues…

  33. Rickie Nurse June 26, 2017 at 6:52 pm

    This is something that I have been saying for years now, Barbados needs to take a leaf out of Trinidad’s book, when you commit murder and you are found guilty, carry out the death sentence swiftly, speed up the appeal process to minimise the long drawn out process and let justice be seen to be served.

    Remember the Dole Chadee gang? With all the hollaballoo from the bleeding hearts internationally such as amnesty international, that did not stop the murderers necks from swinging.
    I know there will be strong arguments that the death sentence does not stop murders from being committed and it is inhumane to carry out the sentence after a certain period of time on death row, but look and see that in the United States many sovereign states execute sentenced murderers who have been on death row for well in excess of ten years and as much as twenty years, they too are part of Amnesty International that seeks to dictate and mandate the imposition Capital Punishment be abolish in other territories.

    I guarantee everyone that the minute the first person here on death row at Dodds swing from that gallows or the old one at Glendairy, person will think twice because it is human nature to want to do as seen fit by you without there being a consequence to pay, no longer will you open hear such statements as “I ain’t care, I going kill you and going in prison and sit down”. Carry out a survey on the prisoners on death row and none of them will tell you that that deserve to face the gallows.
    Is it going to take the lost of life of a government official or one of their very close relatives before the message is sent to convicted murderers that the ultimate price they must pay for their act is the forfeiture of their own life?

    she had no right with this ray can man, why dont women think better of themselves, and let these illiterate, crazy men go on about their business. Never fall in love with a man that is worse off then you, he will want what you got, and many of them still have low self esteem at an advance age, thats why you see lots of men killing the women. They are still carrying around the pain and hurt from when they were kids. Many of them barely went to school, why would women got these men, its better to not have a man if you gonna have a man that is still looking for a mother.

  40. nanci June 27, 2017 at 12:36 pm

    rickie thats why in trinidad they often speed up the cases, and then come to find out, they kill some innocent people. I suggest dont speed up the cases, but make sure you hang the right person. If a man could kill a woman like how he kill a fish, or a man see some woman walking home and rape and kill her, he needs to suffer in prison, dont kill him yet, let him feel the pains of what he did. Most of the time in barbados killers get off after 9 years, especially if they have a good lawyer. They should suffer for a few years and then hang. If a person had to kill for self defense well thats another story.

  41. nanci June 27, 2017 at 12:41 pm

    shawn you are so correct, why kill over a woman, in a few years you will look back and say to yourself, you were so glad to let her go on her business. Most women love drama because if they have a man and they know the man love them, they would do all sorts of stuipid things to get attention. If the man go and get a woman, you will see that same woman want to get back in the man’s life. It happens all the time. I see grown women playing those games, but its up to the man to put a stop to all these stupid women games. Dont kill no woman because she have a man behind your back, just tell her go on her way and dont look back, and you take care of the kids.

  42. Anthony Austin June 27, 2017 at 3:11 pm

    At 72 years, old boy, you should be telling your grandkids fisherman stories. Instead of going to jail and dry rotten for the rest of your life. That’said very sad.
