    Thomas Cholmondeley (C), son of the fifth Baron Delamere and great-grandson of Kenya's most prominent early settler, arrives in Nairobi High court on May 7, 2009. A Kenyan court has found Chlomondeley guilty of manslaughter of a suspected poacher, reducing the charge of murder for which he has already served three years in jail. The 40-year-old Cholmondeley has already spent three years in a maximum-security prison and now faces up to life imprisonment for manslaughter, but could also walk free when sentence is handed down next on May 12. The Eton-educated aristocrat was accused of murdering Robert Njoya, a suspected poacher, in May 2006 but has only admitted to shooting dogs on his 55,000-acre Rift Valley ranch.
