Margarita was arraigned this morning before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser, denied bail and remanded to the Belize Central Prison until February twenty-second 2016, when she is to re-appear again on another criminal matter.   The wallet contained sixty dollars in cash along with some personal items belonging to Doctor Martha Habet.
