Youth, 18, charged with attempted murder for the 3rd time!

BELIZE CITY–A teenager who was charged with two counts of attempted murder for offenses he allegedly committed while he was still a minor and for which he had been released on bail pending his trial in the Supreme Court, has been accused of another attempted murder and was remanded to the Belize Central Prison this afternoon following his arraignment at the Magistrate’s Court.

Deshay “Shady” Williams, 18, a resident of Banak Street, was arraigned on charges of attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm and dangerous harm against Stanley Alexander Flowers, Jr., 18.

Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer, before remanding Williams, a construction worker, to prison, explained to him that her court could not offer him bail at the present time, but he could apply to the Supreme Court for bail.

Frazer remanded Williams to prison until his next court date on January 23, 2015.

Flowers, a resident of 16 Curassow Street, reported to police that around 6:45 p.m. yesterday, Wednesday, he was riding his bicycle on Gibnut Street from the direction of Dolphin Street, heading home.

Flowers told police that when he reached the corner of Fuller’s Lane and Gibnut Street, he was approached by Williams, who pointed a gun at him and fired two shots in his direction.

Flowers was hit once in his lower right arm, and he was transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital Emergency Room for treatment.
