Jevon Belizaire Recaptured and Arraigned for Murder

After twenty-four hours on the run, accused murderer Jevon Belizaire has been recaptured by Belize City police.  The twenty-four-year-old suspect fled from custody on Wednesday morning while being allowed to use the restroom at the Raccoon Street Police Station.  Belizaire is alleged to have shot and killed Ryan ‘Fish’ Thompson on Sunday night on Neal’s Pen Road, following an altercation earlier that day.  The misunderstanding was reportedly over a stolen weed-whacker.  Belizaire was apprehended sometime around five-thirty this morning, before being arraigned six hours later on charges of murder and escape from lawful custody.  He appeared unrepresented before Acting Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser, who took no plea from him since the crime of murder is an indictable matter.  During Belizaire’s arraignment, he informed the lower court judge that he was served with two charge sheets for escape when he only escaped once.  After explaining to him that it may have been a mistake, Acting Chief Magistrate Fraser remanded Belizaire into custody at the Belize Central Prison until October twenty-fourth.
