It's difficult to know who it could be without also knowing at what point he said that in his writing process. Killed like, it was already at the printers, or killed like it's in his outline and he can't figure out a way around it? The best I can find is "a few years ago," but he's been "working" on TWOW since 2011. It could easily be someone in that novel, which doesn't narrow it down at all. Maybe he kills someone at the beginning and realizes he needs that person at the end, but now he's written 1000 pages without them. Victarion? Benjen? (haha)
I was amused to read his complaint that he's again painted himself into a corner. Oh George.
