BELIZE CITY, Wed. Sept. 19, 2018– Steven Moss, 24, charged with the murder of Daniel Anderson, 31, was today committed to stand trial in the January 2019 session of the Supreme Court by the Chief Magistrate, Sharon Fraser, after a preliminary inquiry was held to determine if there was enough evidence to establish a prima facie case against him.
Moss had agreed to a paper committal — a process that would involve a submission by the Crown of all of the evidence it intends to rely on without it being challenged by Moss.
Moss is also charged with 2 counts of attempted murder and 2 counts of use of deadly means of harm with intent to cause dangerous harm.
The charges arose from an incident that occurred in the early morning hours of October 1, 2017, on Queen Charlotte Street in front of Bismark Club. Alexander Underwood was celebrating his birthday at the club when a confrontation flared up between Anderson and Moss.
There was also a confrontation between Anderson’s girlfriend and another woman. The incident turned into a street brawl and Moss allegedly pulled out a gun and fired several shots.
Anderson was fatally shot in his chest, while Underwood was shot in both hands and a woman, Crystal Flowers, was shot in her cheek.
Moss was represented at the preliminary inquiry by attorney Dickie Bradley.
