Family of Slain Youth Arraigned on Gun Possession Charges

Alrick Smith

Today, the family of Myron Smith was dragged to court on firearm charges. Myron was killed on the basketball court behind the Complex building on June thirtieth, just a stone’s throw from his house. The family had just buried Myron when police raided their house on Monday. The search allegedly yielded a firearm and today, the group of seven including Myron’s parents, siblings and two minors were taken to court for arraignment before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser.  They were charged with two counts of firearm related offenses and all were remanded to prison.  One of the minors, a seventeen year old, pleaded guilty, but later changed his plea to not guilty. The group includes Myron’s parents, Alrick Smith and Sandra Casey; his siblings Leon and Tamika as well as his cousin, Ishaida Brooks, and the two minors. The charges are in respect of an unlicensed pistol several rounds of ammunition of varying brands.  After they were arraigned, Brooks, who was charged even though she did not live at the family house, broke down as she was escorted to the holding cell for transfer to the Belize Central Prison.
