Giovanni Ramirez

Last week Wednesday, a prison inmate was stabbed in the prison grounds but it was not fatal. After concluding the investigation, another inmate, twenty year old Giovanni Ramirez was charged with wounding Jamal Ariola. Ramirez appeared before Senior Magistrate, Sharon Fraser for arraignment and he pleaded not guilty and was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until September nineteenth, 2014. Ramirez is presently serving a five-year prison term for robbery. Ramirez is accused of stabbing Ariola multiple times with a bora bora injuring him on the hand, feet and back. On July sixteenth, Ariola was on the compound of the Belize Central Prison with Ramirez when he was stabbed to the left side of his chest. Ramirez was seen holding a sharpened metal object.  He was admitted to the medical center and police claim they recovered what they believe is the object used to commit the crime.
