BELIZE CITY, Mon. July 16, 2018– Rudolph Welcome, 18, a resident of Roaring Creek who was remanded into custody on a charge of attempted murder, was released on a bail of $8,000 with 2 sureties that were offered to him by Madam Justice Antoinette Moore on Friday, July 13.
The bail was granted on several conditions. One of them was that Welcome is not to interfere with the complainant, Eugene Henderson, 22, in any way. Neither is he to interfere with any of Henderson’s friends or family members.
Another condition is that Welcome is to report to the Roaring Creek Police Station every Friday, commencing Friday, July 27, until the matter is disposed of. Welcome is also required to appear in the Belmopan Magistrate’s Court on August 8 and on any other day on which he is ordered to reappear.
Three weeks ago, the Crown had objected to the granting of bail to Welcome on the ground that Henderson, who was shot in his head, was in a critical condition.
The murder attempt occurred on June 9 in Roaring Creek. Henderson had gone to Roaring Creek to attend a memorial service for his missing cousin, Oswald Arnold. Henderson was asleep in a sofa when his assailant crept up on him and shot him.
