One of two men accused in the murder of Calgary businessman Maqsood Ahmed has made a plea deal.
Jean Havyarimana pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter in the death of Ahmed on Tuesday.
Havyarimana was scheduled to stand trial for second-degree murder in April 2018 with a co-accused.
Ahmed was leaving his northeast business with cash and receipts on Oct. 8, 2014 when he was robbed and stabbed to death.
Havyarimana was sentenced to nine years in prison.
