A man charged with causing the death of motorcyclist Denvil Roy Mitchell in 2016 pleaded guilty in Grand Court on Monday.
Warren Samuel Hogarth, now 56, pleaded guilty to driving a Kia Sportage dangerously on Shamrock Road and causing Mr. Mitchell’s death by doing so.
A second charge of causing death by driving under the influence of alcohol is expected to be dealt with when the defendant is sentenced on Sept. 21. Mr. Hogarth’s reported blood/alcohol reading was .189. The legal limit in Cayman is .100.
The incident occurred in the vicinity of Countryside Shopping Village around 8 p.m. on Sunday night, Feb. 21, 2016.
Mr. Mitchell, 40, had been employed with the National Roads Authority.
Justice Francis Belle ordered a pre-sentence social inquiry report. He did not hear any details of the offense because such a presentation is made to the judge who will hand down the sentence, and that court assignment has not yet been made.
Mr. Hogarth was represented by attorney Amelia Fosuhene.
