2 Charged in Mark Jones murder

Deandre Adolphus

Police in Rural Eastern Division have one person detained for the murder of John Ortiz, and in Belize City, police also believe they have arrested and charged the men behind the murder of twenty-nine year old Mark Jones last Thursday. Two face charges – nineteen-year-old Deandre Adolphus for the murder itself, and thirty-three-year-old Bruce Reneau. Reneau, who is Adolphus’ and Jones’ neighbour on Iguana Street Extension, is accused of abetment to murder. Chief Magistrate Ann-Marie Smith remanded them without a plea because the matter will be dealt with on indictment.

On February second, Jones was coming home with his girlfriend and was shot as he entered his yard by a waiting gunman, sustaining multiple wounds to the body. While there was only one shooter, police believe Reneau purposely aided in the commission of the murder. The pair returns to court on April seventeenth, 2017 for disclosure.

    We need to change the laws as they have here in the US. You commit an offence like this with a weapon, whether you were the lookout, driver, planner, side man, you’re equally charged with murder.
