A MAN has pleaded guilty to manslaughter following the stabbing death of an 18-year-old in Ironbark.

Odin Gillin, 21, pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court in Melbourne on Friday to one count of manslaughter following the death of Hayden Coleman.

The stabbing occurred in Energetic Street on the evening of September 10, 2016.

Gillin was initially charged with murder, but the charge has been downgraded to manslaughter.

He will appear at a plea hearing in Bendigo on March 15. 

The sentencing will also be held in Bendigo.

Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth ordered a psychological report be prepared before the next hearing.

She anticipated that multiple victim impact statements would be prepared before the hearing.

“There are likely to be a number of victim impact statements, presumably,” Justice Hollingworth said.
