Frank Young Charged, But He Insists He Did Not Kill David Andrews

Frank Young

They hung out together, but police believe that twenty-year-old Frank Alexander Young decided to kill nineteen year old David Andrews on December twenty-third on Racoon Street, for unknown reasons. As we reported on Friday, he was arrested and charged, but in court Young told Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer that he had no reason to kill Andrews. In fact, he had quite a lot to say in court. In addition to the murder charge, Young was also read charges for escape. But the accused vociferously pleaded his innocence, insisting that he was not even in Belize City that day, but in Lord’s Bank helping his step-mother, an alibi he says family members confirmed to police. Young also claimed that police brutally beat him while in custody, even up to today’s arraignment; they tightened his handcuffs severely and threatened that he should have been killed while in their custody. He says that is the reason why he fled their custody, although he pleaded not guilty to the charge. Young pointed out another accused in a separate case who he says was in custody with him. That person, he said, claimed to have been at the David Andrews murder scene and witnessed the murder. However, it was Young who was remanded on the murder charge until February twenty-eighth, 2017.
