Lloyd Augustus dies – Sherman Rodney to be arraigned for murder

ASP Calbert Flowers

Police are reporting another loss of life to violence. Lloyd Augustus was attacked back on April sixteenth in Belize City. He was badly beaten and sustained numerous injuries and had to be hospitalized. His attacker, Sherman Rodney, who is no stranger to the law, was charged with Attempted Murder a few days after the incident and has been remanded since then. But that charge will now be upgraded to murder because Augustus has died. There are few details about this attack, but police say Rodney is expected to be arraigned shortly for murder.

“It was an incident that occurred in April, I think it was on April sixteenth…it was in the police release, but it came in as an assault. It was investigated and someone was arrested and charged for attempted murder because this guy was beaten so bad that he was hospitalized in critical condition.”

 

Reporter

“Do you know, of course that should have gotten to court for arraignment and then the person either remanded or bailed. You know what is the situation with the person who was charged?”

 

ASP Calbert Flowers

“The accused has been remanded; he is currently in custody. He was charged for attempted murder so he was remanded.”
