ST CATHERINE, Jamaica:

The Portmore woman charged in connection with the killing of her sister almost two years ago has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.




Susan Smith, 38, pleaded guilty this morning in the St Catherine Circuit Court.



She had been initially charged with murder.



But when the matter came up before Justice Vivienne Harris, the Crown accepted the plea to the lesser offence.



Smith was remanded to be sentenced on next week Thursday.



Susan killed her sister Stacey-Ann Smith on April 6,2012 shortly after her arrival from overseas.



Residents became suspicious after a foul smell was detected coming from Susan's house.



Checks later led to the discovery of her Stacey-Ann's body buried in concrete in a bathroom.
