Trio Await Their Fate in Murder Trial

Orel Leslie

A trio of Belize City men, accused of the November 2012 murder of Belize Defense Force soldier James Noralez, appeared before Justice Troadio Gonzalez today where submissions in the matter concluded this afternoon.  Twenty-two-year-old Tyrone Meighan, twenty-seven-year-old Orel Leslie and thirty-year-old Brandon Baptist are awaiting their fate when a Supreme Court decision is handed down in the matter.  On November twenty-third 2012, the bullet-riddled body of the B.D.F. soldier was discovered near the intersection of the Western Highway and Fabers Road Extension.  In the immediate aftermath of the incident, the trio was arrested and detained.  In court, the prosecution argued that Meighan was the triggerman, acting in joint enterprise with the other two men to kill Noralez.  A date for the decision has not been scheduled.
