A Calgary man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of a woman described as his sometimes girlfriend.
Clifton James Spotted Eagle, who had been charged with second-degree murder, entered the plea Tuesday.
A hearing to set a date for sentencing is expected in December.
The court heard Eagle reported the death of Sylina Ann Curley to police.
The body of the 43-year-old woman was found inside a room at a northwest Calgary motel in December 2018.
A number of pre-sentence reviews have been ordered, including a Gladue report which looks into the background of Indigenous offenders. (CTV Calgary)
