BELIZE CITY, Mon. Mar. 23, 2015–A resident of Curl Thompson Street, in the Jane Usher Boulevard area, was remanded to prison this morning after he was arraigned on attempted murder and related charges.
Curlan Herman Phillips, 25, who is unemployed, did not have to enter a plea when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer.
Frazer told Phillips that his case will be heard in the Supreme Court, and the offenses for which he is charged are all indictable, so the court could not offer him bail.
Having established the ground rules, Frazer proceeded to arraign Phillips on charges of attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm and dangerous harm.
The three offences were allegedly committed against Kareem Stevens, 28, on March 21, 2015.
Stevens reported to police that he was riding his bicycle on Central American Boulevard and when he reached the junction of Faber’s Road, he was approached by a man who shot him in the right foot and in the buttocks.
Stevens was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, where he was admitted in a stable condition.
Phillips is due to return to court on June 21, 2015.
