Guilty plea in murder of Surrey realtor Colin Hill

In a surprise move, Khouri Lamar Green has entered a guilty plea for second-degree murder.

The man charged with murdering a Cloverdale real estate agent made an unexpected guilty pleathis week.

On Thursday, Khouri Lamar Green appeared in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster to fix a date for his next appearance.

Instead, he entered a plea of guilty for second-degree murder, along with break and enter and two firearms offences.

The charges go back to last year in a crime that rocked the community.

On July 12, 2015, realtor Colin Hill confronted a 22-year-old man trying to break into his home in the 16500-block of 64 Avenue. During the confrontation, the suspect shot and killed the 42-year-old Cloverdale resident. The attacker then fled in a stolen vehicle.

Hours later in Burnaby, RCMP were called to reports of a man brandishing a gun in an apartment complex and arrested Surrey’s Khouri Lamar Green.

Green has a lengthy history in the court system.

Most recently, he was before the courts related to charges of break and enter, possession of stolen property and resisting or obstructing a peace officer. Several other charges were mostly related to possession of stolen property or break and enter.

In her Facebook post just after his murder, Hill’s wife Becky Zhou said he led the would-be robber outside so as to give the family time to hide.

“Colin is the best real estate agent, very protective father (and) very best husband a person could ever ask for,” she wrote.

Green is to be sentenced on Jan. 26 in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster.
