Life behind bars for convicted killer
Life behind bars! That was the sentence for twenty-two year old Emmerson Eaghan who was convicted for the June 2009 killing of thirty-five year old Dennis Nembhard. Nembhard was senselessly gunned down while walking home between Flamboyant and Oleander Street in the Saint Martin de Porres Area of Belize City. Eaghan was convicted on Monday for the murder and Justice Adolph Lucas handed done the sentence just after ten this morning. Justice Lucas imposed a life imprisonment term from the day of conviction. On Monday, Eaghan was found guilty, after the only evidence to the murder of Nembhard came from a statement given in 2009 by Shelmadine Sanchez who was violently killed, a year after she witnessed the murder. The statement gave a detailed account of what transpired prior to the fatal shooting. This is the first murder conviction for the year 2012.
