Sandhill fisherman charged with attempted murder

BELIZE CITY, Mon. May 14, 2018– Jude Moody, 28, a fisherman of Mile 19, Philip Goldson Highway, Sandhill, was arraigned on three indictable offences when he appeared today before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford. The charges were attempted murder, dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm for a chopping incident that occurred around 11 p.m. on May 11 in Sandhill.

The complainant, Ivan Hyde, 26, a construction worker of Sandhill, reported to the police that he went in front of the house of a friend and saw some men playing a card game. He said one of the men was Moody, and a misunderstanding ensued between him and Moody.

Hyde said that Moody drew a machete and chopped him once in the left side of the neck. Hyde’s assailant reportedly then got on his bicycle and rode away.

Police arrived on the scene and Hyde was put in a BERT ambulance and taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, where he was admitted to ward in a stable condition. His injury was classified as dangerous harm.

Because of the nature of the offences, Senior Magistrate Ford could not offer Moody bail. He was remanded until August 14.
